The objective of this Learning Pathway (LP) is to present knowledge about the main characteristics of DWTP, the needs from and evolution of water treatment technologies and EU legislation on drinking water. Basic facts about the water supply in terms of water distribution lines and their engineering structures are presented. Selected good practices in partners’ countries on DWTP operation are revealed. Trainees are acquainted with the main categories of waterborne diseases as well as the chemical, physical and microbiological contamination of drinking water. Water sanitary risk analysis, assessment and management topics are discussed. The main characteristics of pure water with corresponding qualitative indicators and standards for water disinfection are presented. Special attention is given on innovative concepts and methodologies for training engineers and technical staff working in the drinking water supply sector.
The learning goals are achieved through presentation of training material within the following Learning Outcomes:
Introduction of drinking water treatment;
Basic facts about water supply;
Best practices / Case studies;
Water contamination risks;
Quality standards for drinking water treatment plants;
One countries’ relationship with water;
Technology-enhanced learning & innovative education and training for drinking water treatment plants.
The LP is designed for specialists working as VET Trainers in Chemical engineering 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 labour market.
