(1 Day)
Fundamentals of Coastal Processes and Risk Management
The purpose of this course is to introduce the concepts of coastal processes controlling landform evolution and coastal risk management. Delegates will learn about the physical processes that control how coastal landforms evolve over short- (storm events) and long- (decades to centuries) time periods and how coastal change models can inform planning decisions.
(1 Day)
Hydrology in Flood Risk Management
This course focuses on the core principles and methods for defining floods, in terms of magnitude and their frequency/probability of occurrence, with a view to generating hydrological inputs for hydraulic modelling.
(1 Day)
Hydraulics in Flood Risk Management
This course aims to provide an understanding of the hydraulic mechanisms and analysis methods used in hydraulic modelling and flood mapping for flood risk management. It also covers the principles of culvert design, drainage design and SUDS and provides an overview of flood risk assessment in Ireland.
(1 Day)
Modelling Urban Drainage Risk
This course aims to provide candidates with an overview of the risk-based assessment of urban drainage (sewerage) networks, looking at understanding the prioritisation of investment in modelling programmes and then how to assess and prioritise risk at catchment level.
(1 Day)
Fundamentals of Wastewater Treatment For Engineers
This course will provide attendees with an understanding of the different stages of wastewater treatment and the byproducts (sludge) that result.
(1 Day)
Fundamentals of Activated Sludge and Anaerobic Digestion for Engineers
This course will provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the activated sludge and anaerobic digestion process including terms used to describe health and efficiency, key performance indicators and case studies to demonstrate where improvements can be made, and challenges overcome.
(1 Day)
Fundamentals of Flood Risk Management
The course aims to provide an overview of the analysis and methods used in flood risk management, from feasibility study to construction stage.
(1 Day)
Water Loss and Leakage Management - Level One
This course will provide an introduction to leakage detection, control and management and the relevant technologies used to assist in the process. Trunk main and distribution leakage detection techniques where there is limited metering will also be covered in this course as well as an introduction to asset planning and District Meter Areas (DMA) design.
(1 Day)
Water Loss and Leakage Management - Level Two
This course will focus on the advanced leakage detection processes and the latest technology available in leakage location. The course will also cover District Meter Areas (DMA) management and how to prioritise which DMA’s to work in based on various KPIS.
(1 Day)
Masterclass: SuDS - Hydraulic Assessment and Evaluation
This course aims to provide delegates with a comprehensive insight into the key aspects of hydraulic analysis approaches that need to be considered as part of SuDS design (or 3rd party evaluation of the design) using practical worked examples.
(1 Day)
Masterclass: Evaluating SuDS Submissions to Meet Irish Planning Requirements
This course will identify common policy driver requirements us on the core aspects of SuDS evaluation. Fundamental checks will be identified along with the package of information which would be anticipated for evaluation. The four pillars of SuDS will be considered and how these interlink in terms of delivery of SuDS which deliver against the 4 pillars of SuDS.
(1 Day)
Fundamentals in Flood Risk Assessment
This one-day course provides an overview of the fundamentals of Flood Risk Assessments in Ireland. A flood risk assessment is the identification, quantification and communication of flood risk.
