WATER HYGIENE TRAINING COURSES

It can be daunting, especially for the ‘Responsible Person’, to navigate through the many regulations covering the use of water within commercial/educational/industrial premises. Following our water hygiene training courses, knowledge of the various requirements gives attendees the confidence to access, or even design, the services needed in their particular situation.

Our full suite of water hygiene training courses cover everything you will need (from Legionella awareness, cleaning and disinfection, cooling tower monitoring to pool and spa management) to run an efficient, clean and safe site.

All our trainers continue to work on a variety of sites, carrying out the tasks and programmes they later instruct. In this way the water hygiene training courses are kept current, up-to-date and based on practical first-hand experience.

We provide water hygiene training training courses at your site, at our own dedicated training suite in Faversham and on-line through our website.

Our courses are designed for managers, supervisors, maintenance staff, plant operatives and engineers. On completion the attendees will know the regulatory requirements, what is required to fulfil them and how to remain compliant within regulations set out by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) and Environmental Health Officers.

Special considerations are made for the requirements of BSRIA and the Water Supply Regulations.
All our water hygiene training courses have been developed and are in compliance with the code and service standards of the LCA.
