watertraining.com.au is a site managed by the Queensland Water Directorate (qldwater), the key advisory and advocacy body within Queensland’s urban water and sewerage services industry. qldwater and the Water Skills Partnership represent members from local government and other water service providers across Queensland.
This site hosts online training courses developed by our industry for our industry and the contractors which service it. The current focus is on working safely on or around water and sewerage infrastructure. Over time, more topics are expected to be added along with versions of courses developed with our other Australian partners.
qldwater also hosts regular Fundamentals Webinars which provide practical demonstrations of the most common water and wastewater treatment and network operations tasks, presented by industry experts. Fundamentals webinars are held monthly, with details of future topics and speakers available on the qldwater Events page. Recordings of all past Fundamentals Webinars are available for viewing by employees of qldwater members and Water Skills Partners at no cost.
