Training Workshop on Wind Data Analysis Two training workshops on wind data analysis were convened in the Fiji Islands. Participation at the workshops was from Fiji Department of Energy and from the Tonga Energy Office as part of a wider focused energy training attachment. Energy (E) Training 1999
TAF/ OFDA Courses: Disaster risk management training and development The Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) course was held in Nadi from the 7 - 11th of April and the Initial Damage Assessment (IDA) course was held in on the 1-2nd of May 2003. EOC training was essential to building stronger capacity within country to better respond and manage emergencies and disasters.

Hydraulic Training for the Department of Rural Water Supply (DGMWR) During a field visit to Vanuatu by SOPAC on the NZODA funded Water Demand Management Project, groundwork for this training course was laid. The trip coincided with a training assessment mission for the Vanuatu Department of Geology, Mines and Water Resources (DGMWR) conducted by NZODA. The NZODA consultant saw good opportunities for SOPAC to provide training on basic hydraulics for selected members of Rural Water Supply staff. Funding for the training was to be provided by NZODA. The training took place on two separate occasions in 2000 and 2001 respectively. Water and Sanitation (WS) Training 2000
Introductory Geology Course A public awareness in earth sciences and SOPAC work activities was illustrated in a series of lectures and display materials and presented to secondary school pupils. This was to assist in solving the difficulties identified in the continuation of interest of students pursuing a career at the Apia Observatory. Minerals (M) Training 1992
Damage and Needs Assessment Training Course The training package was developed to bring uniformity in the method for assessing damage and needs in Pacific Island Countries. The need for this course was identified by all PICs and confirmed by the regional training advisory group. SPDRP started developing some material and tested it out in several countries Human Resources Development (HRD) Training 2000
Driller Training Samoa Government drillers in water and geotechnical drilling investigation techniques. Samoan drillers attached to the Apia Observatory were also trained in water and geotechnical drilling techniques.
