Scientific Equipment Training and Consultancy Directorate (SETCD)
SETCD is one of the directorates organized to direct and mange undertakings related to the area of scientific equipment and its sub areas in particular. To this effect the directorate counts with four teams organized along sub areas of scientific equipment with appropriate facilities to render services of training and consultancy separately or in combination.
Mitigation of the multifaceted problems of scientific equipment could not be achieved through the provision of service from only one institution. With this in mind, to expand technical services and make more accessible at national level; to engage user- institutions and private companies in providing scientific equipment technical services; and to enhance capabilities and multiply the number of competent technicians and engineers, the SETCD delivers consultancy and training services along the processes of equipment life cycle.
Major services provided by SETCD through its teams organized along sub-areas of scientific equipment mentioned above are training and consultancy.
Skill and knowledge enhancing and hands-on trainings courses are
provided for those technicians and engineers engaged or hope to engage in
design, reaper and maintenance and management activities of scientific
equipment. The training courses are designed to be provided in groups in
training laboratories meticulously organized for the purpose and that simulate
the working environment. The minimum No. of trainees per/course is 10 and the
durations of the courses are one or two weeks depending on the content of the
course. All trainees that comply with the requirements and cover 80% of the
training session will be given certificate of participation.
