E-Learning and Technology
With such a dispersed workforce across the state, the industry needs to consider e-learning as a viable option as part of a blended learning approach that also includes onsite and face to face training.
Funding through the Water Skills Partnership has allowed qldwater to develop three online training courses specifically aimed at the Queensland water industry.
|The Introduction to the Water Industry provides water industry workers with relevant information about the Queensland urban water industry in general.
||The Legislative Training e-learning package provides an overview of the legislation and guidelines that are relevant to the Queensland urban water industry.
||Our most recent addition is an Introduction to Risk Management in the urban water industry, which is available for qldwater members only - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not a member and would like access to the course.|
These three courses provide a broad overview of the urban water industry, and will guide users in the right direction to learn more.
qldwater also developed three online learning objects linked to units from the National Water Training package with funding from the Australian Flexible Learning Framework, including:
- Tapping a water main
- Maintain and Repair Wastewater Collection Assets (PDF version available here)
- Monitor and Control Maintenance of Wastewater Collection and Transfer Assets (PDF version available here)
These objects are designed to provide an easy to navigate overview of the topic including activities and video to assist with learning. To obtain a copy of any of these learning objects contact qldwater by emailing email@example.com
