Basic Education

As a foundation for their training at the Maji Ni Uhai Campus of Water Technology the participants are given basic training in one of the
trades i.e. mason, electrician, locksmith, mechanic or plumber in a state-approved vocational school in Tanzania. The successful completion
of the training in any of these professions is the basic requirement for the admission to the well drilling training programme in Maji Ni Uhai
Campus of Water Technology in Tanzania.

Job description

To complete the well driller training it is a prerequisite as a bricklayer to have the basic knowledge of building masonry ring wells and water
storage facilities. 

The job of an electrician provides a basis for further training as a pump and photovoltaic specialist and is an important part of the training
concept. Another important key aspect is the acquirement of knowledge to produce current with the power of the sun.

A completed apprenticeship as a locksmith or welder is a requirement for training as a Well Driller. The drilling of deep wells with well drilling
machines is one of the main tasks in this profession. Further basic knowledge in mechanical engineering is required so that if necessary they
are independently able to execute minor repairs and maintenance on the equipment.

Before the start of vocational training in the state-approved schools, candidates have to pass an entrance examination.
