All the courses above may be taken as initial training or continuous education.
Courses for civil servants
The DSET plays a major role in training public servants and continuous education for health ministry personnel in charge of environmental health (Health design engineers, Health Engineering managers and Health technicians). The department also contributes on an ad hoc basis to courses for civil servants working in other fields (public health medical inspectors (MISP), public health pharmacy inspectors (PHISP), etc.).
Continuous education courses
The department provides several continuous education courses on methodological aspects, health engineering techniques and technologies and topical environmental health matters.Back to top
