Training Courses at NWA

NWA conducts training courses on all aspects of water resources development and management; and also on administration and management. Broadly, the following areas are covered.

  • Integrated Water Resources Development & Management (IWRDM)
  • Investigations, planning and formulation of river valley projects.
  • Designs - FEM, designs of various structures, softwares for designs, dam safety
  • Irrigation - Command Area Development, Watershed management, Participatory Irrigation Management, Benchmarking of irrigation systems
  • Hydrology
  • Flood Management, Flood Forecasting
  • Remote Sensing and GIS techniques
  • Hydrometry and data processing
  • Environmental, social and human aspects of river valley projects.
  • Construction and economic aspects of river valley Projects
  • Water Law, and river valley disputes
  • Management Development program for senior officers

On any given topic, different course content is designed depending on the profile of target participants. The programs are divided in following five categories.

Exposure Programs :

These are intended for exposing senior technocrats to what is new. These are not "training programs", in the sense the participants are not expected to learn "how to" do it, but only appreciate what is the state of art, so that they can take strategic decisions to use it in their own departments. These are short duration programs, covering 4 to 6 topics over 3 days.

Operational Level Training Programs :

In this category different programs are designed for JEs, to SEs levels (separately), where the participants are trained at operational level in the given topic. These are 5 days to 15 days duration and focus on one topic only.

Refresher programs :

In separately designed programs for JE to SE level, refresher programs are intended to bring the participants up-to-date on latest developments in the given topic and brush up forgotten concepts. These are short programs of about 3-days and address more than one topic. The difference between this category and Exposure programs is, in Refresher Programs the participants are expected to be already well versed with the subject, and are brought up to date with the latest developments, whereas in Exposure Program new ideas are introduced.

Brain Storming Sessions :

These are for senior level (SE and CE). These are short (3-days) programs where there is no "faculty" and no "teaching". The format is that of open discussion in brain storming mode to "take the thinking forward" and create a "think tank". 4 to 6 topics are discussed over a 3-day period.
