Re: Competence certification for sanitation workers

Dear members,

As announced, the SuSanA Latin America team organized the webinar "Experiences of competency certification processes in Latin America" ​ with the participation of speakers from Bolivia, Peru and Colombia. For spanish speakers, we share the links so that you can access the video of the webinar, as well as the presentations of the exhibitors.

Video:


PPT Peru: www.susana.org/_resources/documents/defa...584-7-1686296663.pdf
PPT Colombia: www.susana.org/_resources/documents/defa...584-7-1686296706.pdf
PPT Bolivia: www.susana.org/_resources/documents/defa...584-7-1686296739.pdf

We also share the main takeaways of the webinar:
  • An evaluation of the competence certification in Perú showed that there was a positive impact on the operator's attitude: more self-confidence, improves workers proactivity and they show more interest in enhancing their capacities
  • Direct relationship with savings variables in the company
  • Competence certification is more inclusive than formal academic certifications
  • Assists in meeting state regulatory requirements
  • A solid collaboration with governmental institutions, NGOs, academic institutions and normativity is required to make possible this kind of certification.
In all three cases (Bolivia, Perú and Colombia) positive impacts were highlighted as well as the difficulties they had to overcome.

Chers membres,

Comme annoncé, l'équipe SuSanA  Amérique latine a organisé le webinaire "Expériences des processus de certification des compétences en Amérique latine"​ avec la participation d'intervenants de Bolivie, du Pérou et de Colombie. Pour les hispanophones, nous partageons les liens afin que vous puissiez accéder à la vidéo du webinaire, ainsi qu'aux présentations des exposants.

PPT Bolivie : www.susana.org/_resources/documents/defa...584-7-1686296739.pdf

Nous partageons également les principaux points à retenir du webinaire :
  • Une évaluation de la certification des compétences au Pérou a montré qu'il y avait un impact positif sur l'attitude de l'opérateur : plus de confiance en soi, améliore la proactivité des travailleurs et ils montrent plus d'intérêt à renforcer leurs capacités
  • Relation directe avec les variables d'épargne dans l'entreprise
  • La certification des compétences est plus inclusive que les certifications académiques formelles
  • Aide à répondre aux exigences réglementaires de l'État
  • Une solide collaboration avec les institutions gouvernementales, les ONG, les institutions académiques et la normativité est nécessaire pour rendre possible ce type de certification.
Dans les trois cas (Bolivie, Pérou et Colombie) les impacts positifs ont été mis en évidence ainsi que les difficultés qu'ils ont dû surmonter.

Competence certification for sanitation workers

The SuSanA Latin America team is organizing the webinar "Experiences of competency certification processes in Latin America", to have an opportunity to learn about the experiences of different countries and try to identify successful paths and processes, as well as failed ones.

The certification of labor competencies in the water  and sanitation sector, which includes solid waste, is an inter-institutional effort between governments, government ministries and other institutions to recognize the capabilities of workers who have demonstrated in practice that they have reached the level of expert in the exercise of an occupation. In the case of Latin America, the target are mostly operators of treatment plants. The majority of workers achieve their training in empirical processes or in the school of life, often in the absence of training offer and continue their work over the years without recognition of their capabilities.

Could this be a way of enhancing the job of sanitation workers and contribute to be recognized as a well respected job? Is there a similar experience in Africa or India? The webinar will be held in Spanish, but if it is of interest for the other regions we could share some key takeaways in English and French later on this thread.

For Spanish speakers you can register on the webinar here .
