The objective of this Learning Pathway (LP) is revealed through Units of Learning Outcomes that deliver trainees with basic facts about drinking water unit operations. They overview all physical, chemical, biological, and mechanical processes that are comprehensively described. The feasibility analysis of drinking water supply is defined. The fundamental issues of residual management are focused on: the type of residuals, the regulatory requirements for their management, technical details of basic treatment and disposal options.
The learning goals are achieved through presentation of training material within the following Learning Outcomes (LOs):
Unit operations for producing clean drinking water;
The LP is designed for specialists working as incinerators and WTP operators with the purpose to help their training, to upgrade their knowledge and to broaden their wider competence in the subject, thus facilitating their realization on the labor market.
