CIV Water: for excellent craftsmen in the area of water

The Centre of Innovative Craftsmenship Water focusses on educating employees and scolars on an vocational level (mbo in Dutch) in the field of “Water”. We are working together with educational institutes as well as with mostly semi-governmental organisations such as Wetterskip Fryslân and Vitens. Our aim is to contribute to the development of excellent waterprofessionals, not only in the region of Fryslân, but also on an (inter)national level.

We do so by organizing innovative courses for professionals together with our partners. Knowledge from these professionals form the basis in our approach; professionals share knowledge by educating each other. These new insights are used in our regular intermediate vocational education and in executing research.

- Tailor made courses which are based on the combination of practical knowledge and 21th century skills;
- Educational programs for (mbo-) schools;
- Practical research (often organised in co-creation with CEW and businesses);
