WORKSHOPS

The dedicated LETZTEST team offers workshops tailored to the needs of its partners. The aim of these workshops is to strengthen the participants in their goal, to sustainably test water quality and operate a successful water laboratory under limited conditions

In the very practical and participatory workshops, the trainees experience water quality testing firsthand, and learn how to successfully manage a water testing laboratory. In more than ten years of practical experience, we have identified critical success factors for operating successful water laboratories in areas of limited infrastructure!

We offer our training courses onsite and/or in Germany. Always individually adapted to our partners, following a successful step-by-step approach. In our own training center in Germany we are equipped with state-of-the-art training rooms and an accredited water laboratory. The special feature: the trainees see and experience how a model water laboratory works.
