Pathogens – a new one-day course

The Water Management Society has announced the launch of a new training course tutored by Elise Maynard and Dr Paul McDermott, held at its training centre in Fazeley, Tamworth, and covering the elements required for sampling, detection, and enumeration, of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Legionella pneumophila according to the most probable number (MPN) method.

Topics covered in the one-day City & Guilds-accredited course include sampling techniques to ISO 5667-1/ ISO 19458, BS 7592, and HTM 04-01, and description and assessment of aseptic technique and practical instruction and guidance for sampling, testing, and reporting of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (BS ISO 16266-2:2017), and sampling, testing and reporting of Legionella pneumophila (MPN method). Background information and problems in healthcare with specific reference to both microorganisms are integral sections of the course.

Delegates need no prior knowledge of the subject, although experience of healthcare water testing would be beneficial. This ‘classroom-based, with practical elements’ course includes an open-book examination at the conclusion. Refreshments and lunch are included.
