Who should attend

This course is intended for all Regulators and water industry professionals, those who are carrying out water analysis and young professionals who want to update their knowledge of water analysis.

About the course

This course presents an overview of the need for analysis of water, how analytical methods are developed and quality control is applied and how the results of analysis are used. It will describe the physical, chemical and other relevant properties of water components and will also cover sampling, clean up, extraction and derivatization procedures. Older techniques that are still in use will be compared to recently developed techniques and participants will direct to future trends. A similar strategy will be followed for discussion of detection methods.

Water is an excellent solvent, it dissolves many substances. To get correct results and values, analysts have to follow sample strategies. Sampling has become a quality-determining step. If samples can’t be analyzed directly they have to be stored and preserve. Physical, chemical or biological activities in a water sample can distort the chemical composition in water. Statistical treatment of data ensures the reliability of the results. Statistical methods will also be reviewed.

Water is living element housing a lot of organisms, wanted or unwanted, harmful or harmless. Some of these organisms produce toxic substances. The course will discuss bacteriological and algal analysis. It will give participants detailed information on most of the cited techniques, sample preparation, separation and detection methods.
