Water Hygiene Card Training

The water industry accredited National Water Hygiene Card Course is designed for those who work in the production of drinking water supplied by the regional water companies.

In the industry the Water Hygiene Card is often referred to as ‘the blue card‘.

National Water Hygiene Card Training Logo The National Water Hygiene Scheme course target audience is those who work with water companies on potable water sites.  It is delivered to thousands of people each year, principally those engaged in construction or maintenance activities. Courses are delivered in Warrington and London or at your office or workshop.

In-House Courses or Open Courses? For groups of four or more people it is usually more suitable to arrange an ‘in-house’ course delivered at your own premises.  This is the more efficient and cost effective method as your staff only need to be away from work for half a day.  For smaller numbers the “Open Courses” are more suitable these are held weekly. To make a booking email Peter on info@waterhygienecard.co.uk and see if we can help you.
