Contact Hours: 5

Course Description

Water treatment is vital worldwide to remove contaminants from water and make it acceptable for a wide range of uses. The Water Treatment Series provides general information about the processes necessary to produce water that meets the specific requirements for its usage. Each module is 30 minutes self-paced, and uses graphics, animations, videos and written content to hit on all modalities of learning.

Overview of Water Treatment - The Overview of Water Treatment module provides learners a general description of water treatment processes and their industrial applications, as well as presents the advantages and disadvantages of water treatment.

Raw Water Treatment - The Raw Water Treatment subject area discusses Sedimentation, Clarification and Disinfection, processes which are an essential part of raw water treatment systems.
Basic Water Purification - The Basic Water Purification subject area covers three processes, commonly used in modern water filtration systems: Media filtration, Water Softening and Ultrafiltration.

Advanced Water Purification - The advanced Water Purification subject area covers purification methods and technologies which produce high purity water to meet the strict requirement of many industries including the pharmaceutical, food and power generation industries.

Outcome

Upon successful completion of the Water Treatment Series students will gain basic knowledge in the following areas: Overview of Water Treatment, Raw Water Treatment, Basic Water Purification, and Advanced Water Purification. This series consists of 10 modules. Each module is 30 minutes in length. IACET CEU’s awarded along with certificate of completion.

Assessment

Each module contains numerous Knowledge Checks along the way to help you measure your understanding. At the end of each module there is a final quiz. A score of 80% or higher is required to earn a certificate of completion.
