2.0 Enumerator Training

Baseline Training Manual for Enumerators


3.0 Baseline Training Facility

The following are the requirements for the Baseline training facility:

  • A room which can fit all the enumerators (It has been suggested to have 30 enumerators per country for the baseline)
  • The room should have conference facilities. It is much preferred to have the training room in the hotel where the team will be staying, if this is possible.
    • Projector
    • Flip charts and marker pens
    • Reliable power supply (especially in Nigeria)
    • A good and reliable WiFi/internet connection
  • Writing materials (It can be really nice if we can get ACGG branded materials)
  • Tea and coffee during breaks
  • A couple of farmers (around 10) who are keeping Chicken and live around the training location. These will be used for testing the enumerators.
  • An open space near the training place to be used for testing the tablets and the forms (Not absolutely a must)
  • Enough power ports and if they are not available a power strip for charging the tablets during training.
