Course Overview

CIWEM have partnered with Sologic, global leaders in Root Cause Analysis since 2018 to deliver a web-based water and environmental sector focussed problem-solving course. This virtually delivered, instructor-led course is trusted and recommended by leading organisations throughout the world.

The complex problems we all face in our sector are certainly unique, but the best practice and methods used to solve them are universal. Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a structured problem-solving method used by a diverse range of industries, from aerospace, pharmaceutical, construction & professional sport, to utilities and finance. When processes break down, behaviours fall short or products fail we need a method that will ensure that our people have the time, techniques and tools required to understand what happened, why it happened and precisely what they can do to reduce the risk of recurrence.
