Project Name: Specialized Course on “Water Quality Analysis for Laboratory personnel”
Name of Client: Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation (BADC)
Period: May 2009 to June 2009 (02 Months)
Description of Project: Under the “survey and monitoring of irrigation project” of Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation (BADC), testing of different water quality parameters needed to be carried out in 6 divisional chemical laboratories. In order to enhance the capacity of the newly appointed chemists and laboratory technicians of BADC, training on laboratory analysis and measurements (including use of sophisticated equipment, e.g., AAS, UV-Spectrophotometer), and QA/QC was needed. . The course was developed as a TA sub-project of BADC aimed at improving expertise and efficiency of BADC chemists and technicians. ITN-BUET developed the specialised course module and undertook a 6- day training program for the BADC chemists and technicians.
