Training of Trainers of Testing of Faecal waste (Sewage and Sludge)

The training is part of three stage handholding process – an initiative by CSE to support other existing laboratories in Ganga basin states and across India. The focus of ToT is to create multipliers – mid level lab technicians and lab managers who can further train fellow technicians as well as contribute to effectively monitoring any decentralized treatment system that manages wastewater/ faecal sludge in long run as certified laboratory. The details of proposed handholding training is as follows -  


  • Perform sample collection from small scale wastewater and faecal sludge treatment systems

  • Understand usage of Personnel Protective Equipments (PPE) in sampling and analysis of faecal waste

  • Learn the importance of faecal waste sample preservation  

  • Develop skill to use the laboratory equipments required for testing and characterization of wastewater and faecal sludge  

  • Monitor the performance of decentralized wastewater and faecal sludge treatment systems and interpret data.
