Online and Classroom based Legionella Training Courses from £20.00 per course

If you run a business, have employees, own or manage a property then you need to have an understanding of Legionella bacteria and have regular training even if you use contractors.  The need for regular training is identified in sections 50 & 51 of the HSE's ACOP L8 and for health & care sites in the Department of Health's HTM 04-01.  Why is regular training needed?  Very simply, because things change.  Official guidance and technical guidance is often updated.  Even if you use contractors you still need to understand the various health & safety requirements for Legioenlla and the control & prevention measures that are in place.

 

Over the last few years, we have seen several businesses, organisations and even councils being fined and prosecuted for Legionella failures and in nearly every case a lack of competence and training was identified.  Prosecutions have ranged from suspended prison sentences to fines ranging from £10,000 to £3,000,000.  Businesses and organisations have been fined even when using contactors because it is the responsibility of the "Duty Holder" to ensure competency and that the measures in place are being effective.

 

Our Government Endorsed Trust Mark Certified team have developed several Legionella training courses.  The courses are particularly usful for landlords, letting agents, employers, managers and for those who are responsible for the day to day control and prevention tasks.  All our courses have been written by qualified engineers with at least a decades Legionella assessment, control and prevention experience.

 

Our training courses have even helped people achieve employment, "Water Wise Services deliver exactly what they say.  The recent training, I received was delivered in a concise well organised and professional manner.  I would recommend their services without hesitation and the certification even helped me secure my new role within the NHS.  A personal thank you to Adam for going the extra mile." - Bobby Bee
