Short Term Biogas Training Seminar for Biogas Plant Operators

18/10/2016 @ 8:00 AM - 20/10/2016 @ 5:00 PM UTC+0

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, in co-operation with the International Biogas and Bioenergy Center of Competence (IBBK), Southern African Biogas Industry Association (SABIA) and SARETEC are inviting to participate in the “Short Term Biogas Training Seminar” in Cape Town. The 4 day training programme is in response to urgent biogas industry needs and requirements.

The training is aimed at capacitating biogas plant operators on the relevant plant operation and maintenance topics. The target group of the training includes project developers, biogas project owners, biogas plant operators and managers.

SARETEC is planning to record the proceedings and have them analysed by education and curriculum experts. The analysis should prove whether the structure of this course could be used as a blue print for the development of a QCTO format qualification for Biogas plant operators.
