Our goal is to propose a model that allows specific training to enhance their skills and abilities, to set a validation process of these abilities and skills that will allow this population to carry out their activities in greater health security, playing a specific role in the fight against pollution; to gain a greater social recognition, and to be recognized as the holder of a know-how that deserves to be transmitted.
