Water Treatment and Purification
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of water treatment and purification.


Water is the most important substance on earth. As an engineer, you might be responsible for ensuring that an adequate supply of safe water is available for domestic, fire protection, and other uses. In meeting this responsibility, you must consider several factors, such as water source selection, ways to develop the water source, contaminants you may encounter, and methods you can use to remove them.


In this course, we will discuss the selection of a good water source, how to test it, and how to treat it so that it is safe for consumption. We will also explore ways to detect and treat water that has been contaminated with chemical, biological, or radiological agents. Lastly, we will talk about the different types of water treatment equipment and their processes.


This 5 PDH online course is applicable to chemical, civil, mechanical and environmental engineers and other professionals who are interested in gaining a better understanding of water treatment and purification processes.
