Studying for an Eastwood Park degree: Alison's experience
Our water hygiene training covers the most relevant and up to date guidance, including HTM 04-01, ACoP L8 and HSG 274.
We offer courses for healthcare and non-healthcare staff, including (but not limited to) Technicians, Appointed Responsible Persons, those responsible for the control of Legionella and those responsible for managing, maintaining and monitoring hot & cold water systems in healthcare and non-healthcare premises.
HSE’s ACoP L8 and HSG 274 states employers must provide suitable information, instruction and training to employees (applicable to designers and installers too) likely to risk exposure to Legionella.
Not just here as a one off...
We'll support you throughout your career with the necessary refresher training to keep your skills and knowledge current, regardless of who you have trained with previously.
