We are committed to the professionalization of the sector


Dual Vocational Training (DUAL FP) is a format of Vocational Training in which students combine training in the school with activity in a company. During the training stay, the students carry out tasks agreed upon by the company and the school, learning specific contents and subjects in greater depth than that which would be possible in the school.

The School of Water participated in the design, approval and implementation of the new Middle Level Vocational Training qualification in “Technician in water networks, facilities and plants”, which has as its reference two level-2 professional qualifications.

Dual Vocational Training benefits the students, since they acquire specialized training appreciated on the labour market, and skills to be developed in a labour context, in addition to having the possibility of combining the training with a paid internship. It is also beneficial for the company, since it has the opportunity of influencing educational contents and the type of learning, and generates autonomous, responsible and specialized professionals.

The School of Water currently facilitates the teaching of this middle level qualification in the following centres:
