Course details

This course enables leak detection analysts to increase their understanding of best-practice principles and implement real-world solutions for: effective design and targeting of DMAs and TMAs; leakage control and strategy; and analysis of spatial data using GIS technology.

Duration: 4 days

Delivery: In-person or Online (live)

Paul Ives

Paul is a Senior Consultant with 13 years' industry experience immersed in the intricate challenges and dynamics of minimising water loss and optimising water resources. His strong understanding of both leakage detection methods and calculation methodologies stems from operational and field roles as well as working on leakage strategy and analysis to gain a thorough working knowledge of water loss.

Course overview

This course was developed by WRc to equip delegates with the knowledge and skills required to implement best-practice principles for effective water loss management. Upon course completion, participants will be able to effectively design and target of DMAs and TMAs; implement Active Leakage Control techniques; strategically plan for leakage reduction; and analyse spatial data using GIS technology.

A comprehensive assessment methodology consists of a multiple-choice questionnaire and a multiple scenario-based evaluation of the resource and detection approach to leakage targeting in simulated DMA's, to be discussed with the assessor. These assessments are designed to determine the participants' understanding of the subject matter and their ability to competently apply their knowledge and skills in real-world situations.

    Who can benefit?

    Delegates may include new-to-post Leak Detection Analysts, and other new starters to the water leakage field.

    Training outline

    Learners will be equipped with an understanding, and confidence in real-world application, of:

    • An introduction to leakage: Economic and environmental implications.
    • DMA Design and Implementation: Significance, benefits, and components, monitoring requirements and configuration assessment of effective TMA & DMA design.
    • Active Leakage Control Techniques: Practical applications: leakage detection; factors affecting acoustics; pressure and small leaks; and catastrophic failure.
    • Planning and Prioritising: Assessing leak severity, developing priority matrices, and implementing effective planning strategies.
    • DMA Targeting: Significance and factors affecting decision-making when targeting DMAs and TMAs in effective leak detection and control strategies.
    • Fundamentals of GIS: Utilising GIS software, understanding spatial data concepts, and recognising the value of GIS in facilitating informed decision-making processes across various professional domains.
