Water Services Training

Water Services Training on behalf of the Water Services National Training Group for Local Authorities (led by Tipperary North County Council).

RPS provides water service training across the spectrum of water delivery requirements covering design, specialist knowledge, legislative requirements and their implementation and the use of software and tools for their delivery. This capability has been developed through the specialist expertise of our key staff, evolved by in-house training of staff in practical ‘live’ project situations and formalised CPD training. RPS has focused on developing specific tailor made training for our local authority clients in conjunction with the Water Services National Training Group via on the job project training and courses on the National Project Control System, Guidance on Preparation of Strategic Water Plans, and Hydraulic Modelling Use.
