With such a dispersed workforce across the state, the industry needs to consider e-learning as a viable option as part of a blended learning approach that also includes onsite and face to face training.
Funding through the Water Skills Partnership has allowed qldwater to develop four online training courses specifically aimed at the Queensland water industry.
The Introduction to the Water Industry provides water industry workers with relevant information about the Queensland urban water industry in general.
These courses provide a broad overview of the urban water industry, and will guide users in the right direction to learn more.
These videos are only available to qldwater and WaterSkills Partnership members - please log in before following the links.
Fundamentals Webinar Series provide practical demonstrations of the most common water and wastewater treatment and network operations tasks, presented by industry experts.
qldwater also developed three online learning objects linked to units from the National Water Training package with funding from the Australian Flexible Learning Framework, including:
These objects are designed to provide an easy to navigate overview of the topic including activities and video to assist with learning. To obtain a copy of any of these learning objects contact qldwater by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
