$ 3900


Course Objective:

   Participants will learn how to operate water treatment facilities and the principles of water flooding.
The main objective of this course is to familiarize the participants with the basic concepts and operation and maintenance aspects of selected and most commonly used conventional water treatment processes.

On completion of this course, the participants will:
 Learn about treatment requirements for different water sources to meet the relevant water quality standards and guidelines,
Understand the basic functions of different conventional water treatment processes and their suitability and limitations,
Know about the basics of operation and maintenance of water treatment facilities.


Target Audience:

  All Water Treatment Facilities Managers, Engineers & Staff.
