  • Girma Moges
    Am interested to learn or to apply water management online free course that is interesting in my life also am working on tap water distribution and treatment

  • Challenging courses
    I completed two of the three courses, the one I didn't do is Introduction to Drinking Water Treatment.
    They are really condensed and the material it's not easy but if you have the time and you are willing to study hard you'll learn a lot.

    If you are serious about learning this topics, then do these courses, but trust me the material is really challenging.
