Water Loss & Leak Detection Operative Training
Duration: 5 days
Aimed at engineering graduates and early career starters, this course explores best practices, asset deterioration, and the application of risk-based methods in the maintenance planning and execution of clean water network infrastructure such as pipes, valves, pumps and meters.
Duration: 2 days
Andy has a strong engineering background with over 30 years’ experience in clean and wastewater applications, specialising in network and revenue metering. He tests, evaluates, conducts forensic investigations of, and develops statistical modelling for performance deterioration of meters and other flow technologies. Andy has developed and presented training courses for regulators and water companies alongside sitting on several UK, European and International Standards committees.
This course equips delegates with a fundamental understanding of the principles of different types of maintenance planning practices, and how they can be applied to a range of asset classes in the clean water network; from pipes, mechanical and electrical components, to reservoirs and disinfection equipment.
Learning the skills to apply these best practices, alongside the knowledge of how to use maintenance data to inform investment decisions, will enable attendees to effectively forecast, plan and execute the maintenance of assets for safe and cost-effective distribution of drinking water.
Delegates may include engineering graduates and those early in their careers who already have a good background of water distribution systems and are looking to develop their understanding of maintenance practices. Participants may also be drawn from any area of business or service where effective maintenance planning and forecasting is required for decision-making. Relevant roles could include but are not limited to, operators, technicians, supervisors, and consultant engineers.
By blending data, science and economics, our asset resilience team at WRc can provide you with the information on when and how best to invest in your physical assets in the water, environment and gas sectors.
