WASHCost offers a free online course for WASH sector professionals. The “Costing Sustainable Services” online course was developed to assist governments, (I)NGOs, donors and individuals to plan and budget for sustainable and equitable WASH services, using a life-cycle costs approach.

Every other month 150 participants can start the course by registering online.

Starting dates for the online course in 2015 are:

Thursday, 1 October 2015 - register online for this course

After registering, participants receive login details and a password to access course material on the preferred starting date of the course.

From the starting date participants follow the course at their own pace by logging in and following the module(s) of their choice. We suggest that participant’s follow the 1, 2, 3 order of the modules, but can select any module to start or switch between modules. The course material guides participants through the modules and exercises completing them at their own pace.
