CPD Training Workshops

groundwater sampling training

In-Situ Europe has been providing professional training in the use of groundwater and surface water equipment - since 1991 - to individuals and companies throughout the UK, Ireland and the wider EU.

Using this experience and our in-house hydrogeological and technical expertise we have developed a series of 1 day training courses, providing up to date guidance for groundwater and surface water monitoring. We can also offer bespoke in house training tailored to your specific needs, please call for a quotation.

groundwater training courseWe offer two CPD endorsed courses:

Course 1
Groundwater Sampling Methodology & Equipment

When faced with differing hydrogeology, borehole and well constructions, what options do you have? Does the methodology you use produce "representative" water samples?

Including low flow and no-purge groundwater sampling methods. 

Course 2
Water Level Measurement using Data Loggers

How reliable and accurate are data loggers in the field? Are all loggers the same? Steps to take to improve the accuracy of measurements in the field.

A practical guide to data loggers and how to improve field accuracy.

Your Trainer
Training is led by Peter Dumble, Hydrogeologist, and founder of Waterra UK Limited, who now operates as a consultant for In-Situ Europe under his own company, Peter Dumble Hydrogeology.

Peter has over 30 years experience as a hydrogeological consultant and is the principal technical author of the current Environment Agency and SEPA guidance for monitoring leachate, groundwater and surface waters at landfill sites. Many of the principles from the Environment Agency guidance have since been incorporated into BS ISO 5667-11:2009 and BS ISO 10175:2011.

Peter is assisted by a team of experienced colleagues from In-Situ.

Who Should Attend?

Courses are designed for those who are looking to update and refresh their knowledge as well as for those new to modern monitoring methods. 

Previous delegates have included environmental and geotechnical consultants, hydrogeologists, field technicians and contractors. We have also hosted a wide range of people involved in planning, research and managment of water sampling and monitoring programmes.

Comments from previous delegates...

"The theory of water movement in boreholes was very useful. The level of experience and knowledge of the presenters was excellent compared to other courses provided by consultants!"

"Brilliant day... clear, well explained and interesting...surprised as an experienced user at what I learnt"

"I had a really enjoyable day and found it incredibly useful, so thank you very much!"
