Principles of Water Treatment
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course addresses the principles of ion exchange in the context of water purity. It also discusses typical water treatment methods and the basis for these methods.


Water treatment is necessary to remove the impurities that are contained in water as found in nature. Control or elimination of these impurities is necessary to combat corrosion, scale formation, and fouling of heat transfer surfaces throughout facility support systems.


This 3 PDH online course is applicable to chemical and environmental engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility operators who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the principles of water treatment.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Water treatment processes
  • Dissolved gases
  • Suspended solids
  • pH control
  • Water purity
