Water professionals (engineers or consultants) from the industry; technologists and innovators from water authorities, companies and anyone interested in membrane technology in drinking water production and industrial water treatment.
In this course participants gain hands-on experience on water treatment with reverse osmosis – a desalination technology with the lowest energy consumption. The course covers a diverse range of issues about the application of this technology, from the pre-treatment needed before reverse osmosis can be applied, to the removal of micropollutants and pathogens in the production of freshwater or water for industry. By the end of the course, after participants have learnt how to design their own reverse osmosis unit, they will be able to better operate their own installations, and make better decisions about investment and maintenance.
The course is delivered over a period of 7 weeks, with an estimated effort of 4 – 5 hours per week, and it is accredited by The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM). Participants who successfully complete this course will earn a professional education certificate and be entitled to 30 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits as well.
