Jump to: Registration to AWS Standard System Training

Whilst our training can be customised or tailored to meet an organisation’s specific needs, AWS Standard System Training is presented as a single package, which takes trainees sequentially through three levels: Foundation, Advanced and Specialist.

Foundation Level

The first level of training provides an introduction to the concept of water stewardship and an overview of the AWS Standard. Through this course, participants gain a foundation-level knowledge of water stewardship and water risk, the AWS Standard and tools that support ongoing water stewardship activity. Foundation Level is an important first step for those wishing to implement the AWS Standard and promote water stewardship.

Advanced Level

Advanced training provides a more in-depth understanding of the AWS Standard V2.0, and utilises a specifically developed case study to embed learning. Through this course, participants achieve a deeper knowledge of the AWS Standard’s criteria and indicators and how they are applied at a site, within the context of a catchment and in supply chains. This training further supports those who will be closely involved in the implementation of the AWS Standard, as well as specialist service providers aiming to achieve their AWS Professional Credentials.

Specialist Level

Specialist training enables participants to gain a comprehensive understanding of the AWS assurance program, accreditation and certification requirements, and other elements of the AWS System. The course benefits implementers, consultants, and others wanting to join the Professional Credentialing program, by providing a full understanding of the auditing procedures and certification requirements.

Tailored Training

This training can be tailored to meet your organisation’s needs through the provision of a personalised training event. If you would like to find out more, please contact us.
