Which Legionella training courses do we offer?

Our Legionella training courses cover various levels, from low-risk Legionella awareness training to high-risk Legionella Responsible Person training. We offer a wide range of virtual, on-site, and open courses, but here are our most popular:

Legionella Responsible Person Training (low-risk)

Suitable for those who may go on to a Legionella Responsible/Deputy Responsible Person or a Legionella Duty holder.

Legionella Responsible Person Training Including Cooling Towers (high-risk)

Suitable for anyone looking to be a Responsible Person whilst working with high-risk cooling towers/systems.

Legionella Operative Training Course (low-risk)

Suitable for anyone who works with hot and cold water systems.

Legionella Awareness Training (low-risk)

Suitable for anyone who is involved in water hygiene systems or who may be exposed to aerosols from water systems.


Why would you need to do a Legionella training course?

Legionella bacteria can cause potentially fatal Legionnaires’ disease without human intervention. Anyone in charge of premises must ensure that constructed water systems are correctly maintained and the bacteria controlled to avoid disease breakouts.

Legionella training is essential for any Legionella control management programme. If you are the duty holder or responsible person, Legionella training will enable you to work competently and ensure people's safety.
