Training is as fundamental to Legionella control as are risk assessments, logbooks and a management structure. Inadequate management, poor communication and lack of training have all been contributory factors in outbreaks of Legionnaires’ Disease. Training can stop the spread of Legionnaires’ disease. 

Legionella awareness training includes:  

  • The history of the organism
  • Review of recent outbreaks
  • Good practice procedures
  • Review of different types of systems and issues associated with these systems
  • Current Legislation and the role of responsible people
  • Legislative guidelines
  • Microbial testing and analysis
  • Literature, handouts and certification will be provided.

Training is designed for Facility Managers, Health and Safety Officers, Public Health Officials and Professionals that offer services related to water treatment, plumbing systems, cooling towers and industrial hygiene. 

Online Training

We are now offering online training courses.

Our first course is our Legionella Awareness for Duty Holders training. This is an advanced training specifically for duty holders, nominated legionella responsible persons and those with operational responsibility for the management of the services of a building.

By the end of the course you have knowledge on Legionella bacteria legislation, be able to identify health risks associated with legionellosis, understand control measures and much more.

Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by Legionella Bacteria in a water system. Legislation requires all “responsible people” to be competent and training should be done a minimum of every 2 years.

Ensure your business is compliant and explore the latest in mitigating Legionella Risk, with our new online training program.
