Small Scale Charcoal Making: A Manual for Trainers.
Karch, Ed; And Others
This training program offers skills training in all stages of the development of technologies related to small-scale charcoal production, including the design, construction, operation, maintenance, repair, and evaluation of prototype kilns. The kiln designs are selected to be as consistent as possible with the realities of rural areas in developing countries. The program is divided into 20 sessions which occur over a 6-day period. Each session description includes: (1) a title; (2) the approximate time needed to carry out the session; (3) a list of objectives; (4) attachments (usually intended for distribution to participants) and other suggested references; (5) a list of suggested supplies and tools needed for the session; (6) a list of steps to follow to meet the objectives; (7) trainer notes (which serve to clarify and explain a procedure, provide background information, and suggest opinions); and (8) activities. Session objectives are inter-related and linked through association with a number of fundamental program themes. These themes are: development and transfer of technical competence; principles and techniques of nonformal education and adult learning; methods and approaches to problem-solving; development issues; cross-cultural perspectives; and the process of assessment and evaluation.
