Rapid Microbiology Practical Applications (22nd November 2018)

The Water Management Society (WMSoc) is a not-for-profit membership organisation that has been providing practical and technical training solutions to individuals and companies within the water management industry for over 40 years. Their expertise in Legionella awareness, Legionella and Water Hygiene training enables them to give the most up-to-date instruction on how to prevent Legionnaires and other waterborne diseases within various water systems, including cooling towers.

By gathering expertise from every sector of the industry, the WMSoc can offer informed and professional assistance in all matters relating to the responsible management of water in industry and commerce. They achieve this through training courses, events, publications and journals, and in addition to these, their Midlands based offices accommodate a unique, on-site Practical Training Area for hands-on experience.

Their members come from a wide range of disciplines including water suppliers, scientists, engineers, manufacturers, consultants and facilities managers. Applications are welcomed from those within the relevant industries both in the UK and overseas. Being a WMSoc member gives access to a wide range of resources and connections with other professionals and regulatory bodies within the water management industry.

The morning sessions are intended to focus on some of the new and innovative microbiological testing methods and their practical applications within the water treatment industries.
