Looking to get more out of your water assets or develop a new skill set? Regional and remote water specialist, Simmonds & Bristow, is excited to offer virtual training for water and wastewater treatment plant operators, with courses commencing Tuesday 9 June.

As remote learning and working become the new normal, Simmonds & Bristow is launching a new virtual training platform, enabling students to connect with experienced industry trainers and take advantage of custom-developed training materials while adhering to necessary social distancing requirements.

Simmonds & Bristow is a leading Australian Registered Training Organisation and has been providing specialty water industry training courses since 1991.

The virtual training timetable features core and elective units all drawn from the NWP Certificate III, IV or Diploma in Water Industry Operations or Treatment qualifications.

Students can choose from units that cover compliance with water industry standards, guidelines and legislation, WHS risk management, and assessing and implementing environmental procedures. Specialist units of knowledge include the operation of membrane filters, along with hypochlorite disinfection, ultraviolet, activated sludge, nutrient removal and digestion processes.

Each unit is delivered over one day, and can be completed as an individual unit of competency or as part of the full qualification – simply attend the virtual session, send in your completed assignments and once passed, Simmonds & Bristow will issue a nationally-recognised Statement of Attainment.

The virtual training platform means that learners can now complete their training online, learning when and where it suits them best, offering water and wastewater operators the opportunity to quickly enhance their professional skills, improve their career prospects and engage in personal development during a time of unprecedented change.

Simmonds & Bristow also offers a Recognition of Prior Learning program to assist those who have industry experience, but still require the official paperwork to back it up.

For those that want to update their knowledge with no homework, the workshop option provides high-quality training without a formal qualification.

This partner content is brought to you by Simmonds & Bristow. For more information on course details, prices or timetables, call 1800 620 690 or email Register now at – courses start on Tuesday 9 June!
