The HRC has conducted a number of training courses in the past for local staff from the ministry and other governmental departments, including short courses on: hydraulics; calibration of hydraulic structures, introduction to computers, etc.

However, the HRC acquired the know-how and potential facility to conduct training courses on unique subjects, such as irrigation water management, hydraulic structures, hydrology and water resources, and GIS application. With the completion of the new computer lab (20 PCs + fast server), the HRC is an excellent position to provide training courses to specific subjects.

The training programs can be on-demand training courses within the field of HRC expertise, including: water management, hydraulics, hydrology, as well as on related tools, e.g., computer modelling, GIS and remote sensing, etc. Again, part of the course fees can be used to sustain HRS staff.
Now HRC prepared a number of regional and international trainings with cooperation with IGAD, Nile basin and others.
