CIWEM forms accreditation partnership with Delft University of Technology

CIWEM are delighted to have formed a partnership with Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) to accredit their short courses in Aerobic Granular Sludge Technology for Wastewater Treatment and Nanofiltration and Reverse Osmosis in Water Treatment. These innovative programmes allow delegates to receive up to 40 CIWEM CPD credits for each programme which can be used towards your professional recognition and chartership applications.

The programmes have both been highly received within the industry internationally. Andreas Giesen, Director technology, Royal HaskoningDHV, the Netherlands says “Aerobic Granular Sludge has rapidly developed into a proven, new modern standard for cost-efficient and sustainable treatment of wastewater. This long-awaited course is the first course that offers deep insights into the fundamentals and design of this game-changing technology –and is directly tutored by the original inventors.” The AGS technology has been designated as the best water technology breakthrough of the past decade by the Global Water Intelligence (GWI).

Pulkit Sethi, Director at Amba Engineers and Project, India commented “As a water and wastewater engineer I needed to keep my knowledge up to date with modern treatment techniques in order to give my clients the best possible solutions in the most cost-effective way. It was a great learning experience mostly because a lot of practical aspects of RO membrane system design were covered along with the appropriate software skills. For a working professional like me who cannot do regular courses due to time constraints, this online course proved to be of great value.”

Upcoming start dates

In 2021, these 100% online programmes will give you a unique opportunity to discover how these technologies work –by visiting functioning treatment plants and installations through VR and video excursions–, understand their underlying processes and learn how to implement them.
