Guardian Water Treatment offers a bespoke course for cooling-tower operators. It is designed for building/facilities managers and maintenance staff. Delivered on site at a client’s premises, training is tailored to the specific needs of a system and takes place over three weeks, allowing candidates to utilised their learning practically straight away.

Aimed at building maintenance engineers who may have many duties, as well as checking cooling towers, the training is designed to get away from classroom-based lectures and give site staff hands-on guidance for their specific system.

Cooling towers are open-circuit systems and therefore particularly susceptible to legionella. Guardian’s training covers ACop L8 legislation, cooling-tower operation, weekly testing and any site-specific requirements — everything needed for safe and efficient operations.

The training finishes with a brief recap of test procedure and final competence sign-off. It is delivered by one of Guardian’s expert team, and the candidate will receive a certificate of competency on successful completion.
