Training and advice are how we equip organisations to engage in water stewardship. AWS training can be customised to suit your organisation’s interests or you can join one of our upcoming training courses to meet other likeminded professionals in your region.

AWS offers four types of training:

  1. AWS Standard System Training. This formal training is instructor-led, delivered online and covers Foundation Level, Advanced Level and Specialist Level curriculum. It is open to the general public and offered in five languages English, French, Spanish, Mandarin and Bahasa Indonesia with more language offerings planned.
  2. Tailored AWS Training. This training is instructor-led developed and tailored to the requirements of an external organisation (company, CSO, NGO or government agency).
  3. Project-related Training. This training on the AWS Standard System and AWS Assurance is typically part of a funded project and can be targeted at a particular industry sector such as Textiles or Micro-electronics of relevance to the project.
  4. On-demand AWS Training. This type of online training is offered via the AWS Tools Hub. It offers stand-alone online video modules that individuals watch, learn and then complete short tests. The Tools Hub platform also holds a growing range of tools such as the AWS E-standard and Guidance. This self-paced training complements our tailored, formal and project-related training products through continual learning. Access to the Tools Hub is included as an AWS Member benefit. Access is also available on an ‘à la carte’ payment basis.

If you cannot find the type of training you’re looking for, or would like to discuss a specific training need, please get in touch with our Training Programme Team.

“The AWS Standard will become even more key to solve shared water challenges in the future – driving cooperation and guiding individual businesses to do the right things right. AWS training should become mandatory for all CSR and Environment Managers at FMCG companies!”

“Excellent training. Hands on, interactive, and collaborative. I can highly recommend it.”
