Geothermal Training Course in El Salvador

6.06.2013

Professionals and students from Latin American and Caribbean countries may now apply for participation in a five-month geothermal training course in El Salvador

NDF is cofinancing the establishment of a Regional Geothermal Training Centre in El Salvador together with the Interamerican Development Bank.  The other project partners include the Salvadoran National Energy Council, University of El Salvador and the geothermal power company LaGeo. The United Nations University’s Geothermal Training Program from Iceland has outlined the curriculum and made proposals how to organise the training. As the first training activity, the University of El Salvador will implement a five-month training course in geothermal energy.

University of El Salvador now invites applications from interested professionals and students from Latin American and Caribbean countries to participate in the training. Number of students is limited and preference will be given to applicants from countries with geothermal potential.  For more information about the training, application procedures, and available scholarships please visit the web page of University of El Salvador (see link below).
