"The Future of Industrial Training: the New Digital Classroom"

About the Webinar:
At TPC Training Systems, we’ve been on the hunt for ways that our industrial skills training solutions can evolve to meet the needs of all of our customers, and we’ve learned some things in the process. In this webinar, we’ll share what we’ve learned and give you a preview of the future of industrial training.

You’ll learn about:
  • The best uses of webcast and simulcast training formats
  • The advantages of blended online and live training
  • Virtual reality (VR) training environments, including an exclusive sneak peek inside a VR simulation

    Introduction to Water Technology

    Introduction to Water Technology

    Covers the nature, use, and properties of water. The course traces the history of water treatment methods from ancient times to today's sophisticated systems. The effects of chemical and biological factors on the purity of water are explained. Introduction to Water Technology is available in course manual format.

    TPC Training Systems is authorized by IACET to offer 0.5 CEUs for this program.

    Lesson 1 - Water: The Basic Resource


    Precipitation; Surface runoff; Groundwater; Municipal, industrial, and agricultural use; Waste disposal; Upgrading water quality

    Learning Objectives:
    – Name the continuing processes that make up the water or hydrologic cycle.
    – Describe the atmospheric process that produces precipitation.
    – Identify the users of municipal water supplies.
    – Point out some of the important advances made in water treatment since 1900.
    – List the benefits of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendment of 1972.

    Lesson 2 - Water Collection, Treatment, and Distribution


    Collecting surface water and ground water; Transmission of water; Treatment types; Distribution; Primary, secondary, and tertiary treatment

    Learning Objectives:
    – Explain the differences between a confined aquifer and an unconfined one.
    – Tell why it is necessary to treat water for drinking and for manufacturing purposes.
    – Describe the treatment processes of sedimentation and coagulation.
    – Describe how a system for the distribution of treated water operates.
    – Tell what takes place during the primary treatment of wastewater.

    Lesson 3 - Physical Properties of Water


    Color, taste, odor, and temperature of water; Solids in the water; Turbidity; Suspended matter; Measuring electrical conductivity

    Learning Objectives:
    – Distinguish between the apparent color and the true color of water.
    – Name the four basic tastes of water that a person can sense.
    – Tell how a rise in temperature affects the various properties of water.
    – Name the sources of organic and inorganic solids that pollute wastewater.
    – Explain the differences between suspended solids and dissolved solids.

    Lesson 4 - Chemical Properties of Water


    Atoms and molecules; Acids, bases, and salts; Ionization; Alkalinity and acidity; Hardness of water; Unwanted chemicals; Dissolved oxygen

    Learning Objectives:
    – Identify the particles in an atom, and tell how they fit together to form the atom.
    – Describe the relationship between a pH number and the concentration of H+ ions.
    – Name the two color tests for alkalinity of water and tell what colors they produce.
    – Describe the ion exchange and lime-soda processes for removing hardness from water.
    – Tell why a certain amount of dissolved oxygen (DO) is necessary in surface water.

    Lesson 5 - Biological Properties of Water


    Pathogenicity; Disinfection; Stabilization of organic matter; Biochemical oxygen demand; Bacteria; Viruses; Algae; Protozoa

    Learning Objectives:
    – List the methods commonly used to disinfect water.
    – Tell how temperature changes affect the rate at which living organisms grow in water.
    – Tell how-and how rapidly-common bacteria reproduce.
    – List the most effective methods used to inactivate viruses.
    – Explain how the presence of algae speeds the process of eutrophication.
