We believe that it is absolutely vital that all personnel involved in monitoring or managing any water treatment program understand and recognise their scope of responsibility and in order to achieve this, they are well trained and competent at their job.
Training and competency is the cornerstone of any successful water treatment programme and is a key requirement of both BG04 and HSG274.
At Deep Water Blue we have been delivering bespoke high quality and interactive training programmes to clients for over 14 years.
We offer training for the purposes of helping to achieve compliance with industry standards such as HSG274 and BG04.
We offer on or off-site training in disciplines such as:
- Management of Cooling Systems
- Water Hygiene Management
- Water Hygiene and Cooling Operation
- Steam systems
- Boiler and Steam Generator Water treatment
- Closed Loop Water Treatment
- Data logging and vSteam®
- Test kits and waterside analysis of steam boilers or cooling
- BG04 and BG01 Interpretation and compliance
- Control of Legionellosis
- Legionnaires' Disease
Our courses typically involve a technical presentation, followed by a site-specific review of plant and a written test to conclude.
Each training course lasts several hours and will provide an in depth review of the subject matter involved, such that the personnel sitting the course will go away having significantly improved their levels of both operational and technical knowledge.
Once your training course has been completed, additional back-up support is provided by our service teams, who meet clients and reinforce the information passed on. This continuous process of reinforcing training, concepts and ideas, leads to competence being achieved far more quickly, than simply by what might be gleaned from a classroom environment.
Our trainers are technically competent and time served personnel, with extensive knowledge of water based systems.
We are members of The Royal Society of Chemistry, The Combustion Engineering Association and the Water Management Society.
Steve Bagnall-NHS Estates Manager, one of the delegates from a recent BG04 training course run by us, on behalf of The Combustion Engineering Association (CEA), commented as follows;
"The course covered a lot of information, delivered in concise chunks that were easy to absorb. The structure was clear, logical and effective and the CEA has obviously put a lot of thought and expertise into designing it in line with BG04. The main benefits came from doing assignments, receiving individual feedback and interacting with the training provider.
The format gave me the confidence to implement new testing techniques and to understand the importance of water treatment as an engineer and not as a chemist. A must for all boiler Operators/Managers."
" The CEA have stated very clearly that 95% of all accidents and incidents on boiler plant is due to Bad Management of Boiler Water Treatment. Members of CEA and those of ICOM developed BG04 Boiler Water Treatment Guidance, a guide that industry really needed for many years. The training course for boiler water treatment training was developed by Deep Water Blue and with support from CEA which has proved to be an excellent course delivered by Mick Casey and his team at DWB over two days. The delegate feedback is that this course is excellent, delivered in plain English and easy to understand for anybody responsible for boiler water treatment on site, it also allows that person to challenge a contractor who is looking after their boiler water treatment, a first for non-chemists. As one of the recent delegates mentioned this is not for chemists but is for operators and managers along with engineers "this is a must for all boiler Operator and Managers".
