Due to the ongoing COVID-19, some changes in courses are likely to happen. Kindly check with the provider on an individual basis.
The various courses held in Auroville by Auroville Earth Institute aim to introduce and promote the technology of raw and stabilised earth to build with. The AURAM equipment for earth construction and the technologies taught have been developed by the Auroville Earth Institute. All classes are held in English. Training courses are restricted to 30 people and a written confirmation should be obtained before sending persons to attend a course. Note that the courses are very intensive and that any lecture missed will be detrimental to the trainee. A certificate will be issued at the end of every week and manuals will be given. Trainees should bring working clothes for the masonry, production and intensive courses. Extra training courses can be organised upon request (all listed in addition to earthquake resistance). Minimum of 12 trainees is required, otherwise the course will be cancelled.
