Funcionamiento y Operación de EDAR

The Online Course on WWTP Performance and Operation enables WWTP operators to identify the main problems that need to be addressed in the operation of a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). different wastewater treatment processesThe basic installations used and the normal operating conditions; adjust and operate mechanical, electrical or measuring equipment of different parameters for the control of purification processes, and carry out and control the operations of treatment, storage, utilization and removal of waste and purification by-products.

The design of the program, both in terms of content and delivery approach, has a ultimate objectiveThe aim is to ensure that the training has a real impact on the performance of professionals.

AIMED AT:

  • Profiles of wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators.

UPON COMPLETION, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO:

  • Knowledge of wastewater.

  • Knowledge of wastewater treatment plants (WWTP).

  • To know the pretreatment of wastewater.

  • To know the primary treatment of wastewater.

  • To know the biological treatment of wastewater.

  • To know the sludge line of a WWTP.

  • To know the tertiary or complementary treatment of wastewater.

  • To know how to take samples for wastewater analysis.

  • To know how to take data from instruments and meters installed in WWTP.

The content of the course has been elaborated taking as a basis reference the map of professional competences that make up the certificates of professionalism approved by the Ministry of Labor and Social Economy of the Government of Spain for the Vocational Training System for Employment.

Evaluation system

The tests are taken individually and in self-correction format through the virtual campus.

All tests and questions are based on the content taught in each unit.

Diploma

Participants who successfully complete the program will receive a diploma issued by the Water School. The diploma includes the name of the course, the number of hours of training, the training units completed and the contents of each unit.

In order to obtain the accredited diploma it will be necessary to have been trained in all the contents of the course and to pass the evaluation tests at the end of each didactic unit.
