Diploma in Water Chemistry - Level 4

This Diploma in Water Chemistry – Level 4 has been developed to help you learn all about water chemistry in great detail. This course will study the impact of water on various elements in other ecosystems and how their collaboration affect water and the quality of water. Our tutors will also show to how to identify and qualify properties and chemical compounds in water samples and hence, will mold you into a skilled professional to get into or progress within water treatment, environmental science, environmental engineering or water chlorination related careers.

This diploma course will first enlighten you about the nature of water and its unique properties as opposed to other elements in nature. You will then get to review the molecules that form water, followed by an insight into the commonly found water chemistry. This course also dedicates a few modules that will delve into topics such as hard water, alkalinity inorganic chemical, metalloid and many more.

Our tutors will also focus on concepts such as chemical monitoring and water treatment principles that will come in handy for your career. This course also takes it a step further by teaching you about the chemical hygiene plan and laboratory safety to help you ensure a safe working environment. By the end of this course, you will have an outstanding knowledge on water chemistry to use it appropriately in your career.

Diploma in Water Treatment - Level 4

Water treatment is an important process that intends to improve the quality of water to use it for various purposes. The process of water treatment involves the contribution of specialised plants, processes and systems, which are utilised to ensure the wellbeing of all lives that consume water. Therefore, it is essential to be well-versed with these aspects of water treatment to get into the industry, and this Diploma in Water Treatment – Level 4 has been developed to help you with that. This course will extensively cover the areas of water treatment to shape you into a skilled professional in the subject, provided you have a recognised qualification at level 4 or above in a related discipline.

This course will start off with an introduction to the concept of water treatment and its importance in the modern world. You will then move onto learn the concept of chlorination, its importance and its byproducts, after which the course will walk you through the essentials of water disinfection and its byproducts. This course also aims to strengthen your knowledge about oxidation chemistry and oxidizing agents that play a significant role in disinfecting water from dangerous bacteria and viruses.

The course curriculum has also given consideration to the various water disinfection methods and waterborne pathogens to keep you more informed. Since this course focuses on molding you into a water treatment professional, a few modules will also look into issues such as leading teams within the water treatment works, work policies and procedures of water works and many more.
