Project Name: Specialized Course on “Irrigation Water Analysis and Application of Spectrophotometer for BADC Laboratory personnel”
Name of Client: Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation (BADC)
Period: May 2003 to June 2003 (02 Months)
Description of Project: Under the “Survey and Monitoring project” of Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation (BADC), water quality parameters needed to be tested in 6 divisional chemical laboratories throughout the country. In order to carry out sampling and analysis of water quality parameters, the newly appointed chemists and laboratory technicians of BADC required practical training of water sample collection, preservation, testing (e.g., using AAS and UV-VIS Spectrophotometer), and QA/QC. An agreement signed between BADC and ITN-BUET to conduct a training program on irrigation water analysis and application of spectrophotometer for BADC laboratory personnel. ITN-BUET developed a specialised training course module and undertook a nine (9)-days long training program for chemists and laboratory technicians during May 31 to June 8, 2003.
