Waterwise Training

We only learn the true value of water when the well runs dry.

Waterwise One Day Training Course

Develop your skills and knowledge around water efficiency and become more confident talking to others about the topic. Come and join us for our one day training course which will get you up to speed on water efficiency issues and solutions in the UK and beyond. The training is suitable for beginners and intermediate levels, and we like a range of people to attend as we encourage discussion and sharing examples throughout the day.

Our Mission

Waterwise’s vision is a UK in which water is used wisely every day, everywhere.

 

Through Waterwise Training we can build water efficiency capacity across the UK in practitioners and ambassadors, and drive culture change in organisations. Increasing population and recent droughts have focused attention on the importance of water efficiency to the economy, society and the environment, right across the UK – and the need to scale this up. 

The water sector is facing significant water efficiency challenges and there is a need to work with customers to help them think as responsibly about water as they are beginning to do about recycling and energy saving. Water companies, energy companies, housing associations and local charities are offering ever larger and improved water efficiency advice and home retrofits.

Once you have completed the course

  • Graduates will have the information and confidence to speak about water efficiency with colleagues, customers and the friends and family. 
  • Graduates will have an in-depth understanding of why water scarcity is a problem and how we can tackle it. 
  • Staff of water companies, contractors, housing associations and others will have increased ability to meet water efficiency targets and regulatory requirements.
  • The combination of behavioural and mechanical interventions along with policy knowledge means graduates will be equipped to deliver maximum water efficiency savings. 
  • If you pass the short test at the end of the day, you will receive a Waterwise certificate.
