National Water Hygiene (NWH) Trainer Briefings

We are over half-way through the Trainer Briefings we are holding for the redeveloped NWH scheme, with over 300 trainers already having attended or booked to attend a briefing.

Attending a briefing is mandatory in order to maintain your Trainer Approval. Non-attendance will result in your approval being removed.

There are still a number of dates and times available. So, if you haven’t already booked on to a trainer briefing session, please do so by clicking here.
