As well as initial training, knowledge should also be kept up to date with regular refresher courses. Our City & Guilds accredited courses offer an easy and accessible platform for risk managers of all levels to receive the specialist training and information they need to safeguard their workplaces against the risk of a Legionnaires' disease outbreak.”

Each course has been specially developed to meet the needs of risk managers and contractors working at all levels of technical competence and experience.
