Productivity of an organization depends entirely on the availability of human resource within it. Likewise, national output and services also depend on the human resource available in the country. All levels of development suffer severely from scarcity of right people in right places. To facilitate the development of human resources, the most important tool is training.
In persuasion of this objective, ITN-BUET offers training on different aspects of water supply and sanitation to achieve an improved human resource base, which promotes sustainable development. WSS is an important sector as it impacts general health and hygiene of the entire population. In the past, only physical facilities were emphasized for safe drinking water and sanitation for people. But the national and global experience has demonstrated that construction of physical facilities alone is not sufficient to improve general health of people or to guarantee sustainability of water and sanitation services. The quality of construction; choice of technology; operation and maintenance (O&M) and hygiene promotion are the key factors in sustainability of the services, improvement of general health as well as well being of people. The sector will need enormous manpower to achieve sustainable services that make a positive impact on health. Appropriate and effective training programmes are necessary to increase skill among the staffs of different agencies to cope with the changed environmental needs.
For the implementation of human resource development through training, the necessity of efficient and effective trainers cannot be denied. To enhance the effectiveness of training programme by optimum utilization of resources, the role of the individuals involved in it is very crucial. The first step to design and develop a successful training programme is to identify the trainees and the type of training they need. A relevant, accurate and complete need analysis ensures the effectiveness of the programme. The success of a training course depends on its proper management and coordination. The responsibilities at the managerial level comprises of the process of managing all the resources and supportive services.
Development of training skill is a primary requisite in building resource base set with master trainers who will develop trainers for the future. These trainers will transform their skills to others to improve the capacity of their respective sector. As a means of improving the resource base for capacity building, ITN-BUET regularly arranges specialized course on ‘Training Skill Development’.
