The Drilling Supervision short course was conducted to participants from Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states. The training was conducted as part of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for professionals in the groundwater industry. In the modern professional ethics, the groundwater work falls under the hydrogeology/geohydrology profession. However in most of the developing countries, the hydrogeology or geohydrology professional is just starting to evolve and there is therefore limited number of specialized hydrogeologist/geohydrologist experts, thus the training did not exclude all other professionals who are involved at various levels in groundwater.
The course covered: Geology and Groundwater Occurrence; Understanding Basic Aspects of Groundwater; Principles of Borehole Supervision; On-site Supervision; Drilling Preparation; Drilling; Borehole Development and Completion; Field demonstration of pumping test; and Borehole profiling and collection of groundwater samples
