Tanzania: 511 students receive training in renewable energy

Through the training initiative at Don Bosco Dodoma and Iringa, students benefited not only from their solar technician courses but also from soft skills training, field attachment internships, study tour visits to local renewable energy companies and other career guidance.

All 511 trainees also benefited from job placement and career guidance and were placed for a field internship to gain practical training for at least two months. Internship placement was useful as many solar energy projects are located in the interior of the country, and students were able to gain experience in understanding the practical application of their classroom studies. A total of 308 graduates are now qualified solar technicians with the capacity to install, operate and maintain solar-powered grids.
