In Tanzania, the Symbion Power Center trains linesmen in the construction of distribution lines. Three experienced Tanzanian linemen received training at the Northwest Lineman College in Boise, Idaho and are responsible for training local trainees at Symbion's Center in Morogoro.
Based on Symbion's transmission and distribution work in the country, education at the Symbion Power Center is concentrated on training linesmen and women in the construction of transmission and distribution lines, as well as courses in Health, Safety and Environment.
Train the Trainers – Teaching Tanzanians U.S. Construction Practices
Train the Trainers is a unique program developed by Northwest Lineman College exclusively for the Symbion Power Center, a training school in Morogoro, Tanzania. The curriculum is designed to teach experienced Tanzanian lineman how to train local labor to U.S. standards for the construction of transmission and distribution systems in Tanzania.
Following completion of the customized eight-week program, Isaac Babu, Charles Mhalula, and Damas Mpangiri returned to Morogoro where they train locals at the Symbion Power Center.
Symbion is dedicated to developing local capacity and continues to train a skilled local workforce capable of constructing and installing electrical power infrastructure.
