Because of COVID-19, many providers are cancelling or postponing in-person programs or providing online participation options.

We are happy to help you find a suitable online alternative.

Who should attend

This course is suitable for biologists, microbiologists, water services, supervisors chemists, team leader ‐ water & power, physics analysts and technicians as well as professionals who want a better understanding of the subject matter.

About the course

This training course covers water analysis issues and starts with a review of standard natural water analysis, which is de-constructed in order to demonstrate how it is built up from first principles; starting with rain (pure water) falling through the atmosphere, soaking into/onto the ground etc.

The course builds from these essential components and goes on to cover the units of analysis, which are explained, as is the significance of the various components for industrial and commercial users.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Know the essential analysis tests which should be carried on water and wastewater samples
  • Know the best required analysis techniques for both chemical and biological analysis of water and wastewater samples
  • Know the various ways of chemical and instrumental analysis techniques used in analytical laboratory
  • Demonstrate understanding of properly techniques of potentiometric, spectrometric and colorimetric analysis techniques
  • Know the best water and wastewater quality required for drinking, domestic and general used water
  • Know and explain the standard microbiological tests and analysis carried on water and wastewater samples as total coliform, COD, BOD, DO and TOC
  • Heavy metal analysis as Mercury, Lead, Copper, Tin and others
  • Interpret the important of membrane filtration test and solid analysis
  • Interpret and discus the analysis result reports
