Water Quality Control Book Course

Course Duration

5 Days

Course Description

Water is an excellent solvent, it dissolves many substances. To get correct results and values, analysts have to follow sample strategies. Sampling has become a quality-determining step. If samples can’t be analyzed directly they have to be stored and preserved. Physical, chemical or biological activities in a water sample can distort the chemical composition in water. Statistical treatment of data ensures the reliability of the results. Statistical methods will also be reviewed in this course.
The course will deal with the water characteristics (physical, chemical and biological) and their analysis methods. The program presents an overview of the need for analysis of water, how analytical methods are developed and quality control is applied and how the results of analysis are used.

Course Objective

Upon the successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Apply an up-to-date knowledge and skills on water analysis and quality control techniques
  • Select proper water samples from different sources including seawater, river water, and different water sources.
  • Practice the latest water analysis standard methods and use the correct analytical equipment to achieve the required results.
  • Implement the various laboratory methods and technology in water analysis including qualitative/quantitative analysis, titrimetric, potentiometers, Colorimeter, spectrophotometer and chromatography.
