The course is developed to equip trainees with the skills, knowledge and improved attitudes needed to carry-out day-to-day site supervision of labour based and community managed urban upgrading works. The training manuals are in modular format and divided into two sections: basic and skills course. The basic course covers the following topics: the urban environment; construction measurements and calculations; community managed and labour-based approaches; tools and equipment; basic tecnical skills, work implementation issues; work planning and reporting and quality control. The skills course covers work management, labour issues, solid waste management; urban roads, drainage and sanitation, quantities and costing, contracting. The two two manuals are complimented by a site reference hand book which contains key data and guidance, and can be used separately on site as a handy reference tool.
