Technical Training Event - Kampala, Uganda
In late October TGS spent two weeks in Kampala, Uganda training 2 groups of drivers from Peace Corps Uganda. The courses were held on the outskirts of Kampala with 10 participants in each group.
The course comprised of the following elements: road safety, use of the 4WD systems, recovery, vehicle maintenance and general off road driving in harsh conditions.
The first day was spent in the classroom environment and from there on the next three days were spent out in the field.
Despite the long training days under changeable weather and technical challenges, all participants enjoyed the training courses and had a great experience.
Peace Corps Uganda are now finding ways to train others within their own in-house programme.
This year alone the training department has completed 8 training courses for Peace Corps operations worldwide and training over 80 participants.
