Abstract: In Uganda, technical personnel in the Sanitation Sector experience challenges that are not adequately catered for in their training. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the training syllabi is adopted from the colonial times and does not in many cases cater for the local conditions. For the efficient functioning and service delivery in the sanitation sector it is important that technical personnel are adequately trained to handle challenges in the field. The available training options and some of the challenges faced are discussed and proposed recommendations made. Through interviewing some of the technical personnel in the sector, it was reported that some aspects of the training were inadequate and there was need for improvement. It is recommended that training of the technical personnel is updated to suit the prevailing needs and appropriate methodologies of training should be used. This would contribute to improvement in the delivery of services in the Sanitation Sector.
