1 Training objectives::

The objective of the training is to establish the professional skills and knowledge transferring technology, to implement the production of Spirulina as a nutritional supplement.
This program will form field agents for installation and operation of production equipment, adapted to the capacities of settings in the developing countries.

The focus will be a humane objective for the production of spirulina as a food complement combating malnutrition, otherbspecific needs or specific humane catastrophes.

The countries in which this production program would be set up, will be, but not limited to, the signatories of the COMESA (Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa), or Member-States of ISP (Intergovernmental Spirulina Program)

The scale of feasibility can be custimized for a city, a village, or a local organization. Production training will be developed with appropriate technology for local development.
