New Date Released for Drain Repair Course (4th & 5th March 2014)

September 29, 2013 Categories: Events

WRc held a two-day “Essentials for Managing Drain Repair “course on the 4th and 5th March 2014 at their office in Swindon. The aim of the course was to improve understanding of the cost-effective use of this key maintenance discipline. It examined the investigation and repair of domestic and light industrial drains and identified the key decisions for selecting appropriate repair techniques.

The course is accredited by Energy and Utility Skills, and each successful delegate receives an officially recognised certificate to show their professional competency in Drain Repair Management. Each delegate is also registered on the EU Skills Register of Professional Training.

Delegates receive a copy of the 3rd edition of the Drain Repair book published in 2012, which both updates and adds content to the 2005 edition and was significantly modified in response to the October 2011 Transfer of Private Sewers and Lateral Drains.

Further changes have also been made to reflect users’ comments and particularly feedback received from past delegates of the course. These changes include additional illustrations of drain ownership and responsibility, pipe condition and serviceability, extension of the techniques to include patch repairs, clarification of lining specification requirements, the legal aspects of drain repair and the inspection of treatment facilities including septic tanks and for the first time, small package treatment plant.
