CBMS (Community-Based Monitoring System) training modules are particularly designed for local government units (LGUs) doing CBMS in their local areas. This second course on CBMS is a sequel of the module on CBMS Data Collection (RTC–03) and is, hence for LGUs that are about to encode the data collected using the CBMS instruments - the barangay profile questionnaire (BPQ) and household profile questionnaire (HPQ). Participants of this course will be trained on computerized processing of data collected from the BPQs and HPQs using CSPro-based encoding system and digitizing maps using CBMS-NRDB. Said softwares are shared by the CBMS Network Coordinating Team to LGUs for free.
What will participants gain?
At the end of module CBMS Module 2, participants are expected to: know the basics in CBMS file management and some necessary database operations; be familiar with the encoding and digitizing softwares; be knowledgeable on the proper encoding of accomplished BPQs and HPQs; learn how to recognize inconsistent entries; and be able to troubleshoot errors encountered; Learn digitizing maps and shapefiles; and learn matching of HPQs with map data.
Who can participate?
LGU personnel or staff who is or will be involved in CBMS data processing at the local level (provincial/city/municipal/barangay). It is highly preferred that participants are 1) computer literate particularly in Windows Explorer, MS Excel or any Spreadsheet application, and MS Word or any Word processors; and 2) have attended CBMS Module 1.
