The training for Ekurhuleni Water Care Company (ERWAT) kicked off during October 2021. ERWAT water is responsible for 19 treatment plants. The ERWAT trainers and plant managers, Mr. Norman Mahlangu and Mr. Livhuwani Mathomu successfully completed the Training of Trainers programme in March 2021. As a result of this, they are now training ERWAT process controllers in the Basics of Wastewater Treatment course.
As most of you are aware, Agnes Maenhout will officially retire from World Water Academy on 17 October 2021. We greatly appreciate all her hard work and valuable contribution towards World Water Academy.
The first interactive online Basics of Wastewater Treatment course was held from June 22nd till July 13th. Participants from the European and African continent joined the sessions together with World Water Academy trainer Helle van der Roest, wastewater expert from Royal HaskoningDHV. Participants had a wide variety in background experience and existing knowledge, and a communal wish to learn more about the wastewater treatment processes.
After completing this course you will understand and recognize possible causes of pollution and contamination in the distribution of drinking water. You will learn various methods and ways to prevent contamination even without chlorine. You know how these methods are correctly applied in practice. The content of the training course is based on the hygienic working practices in the distribution of drinking water as defined by KWR Water Research.
