Training courses with HR Wallingford: river hydrology, flood risk and SuDS 

River modelling and drainage assessment for flood risk management – 23-24 January 2018

This course is targeted at local authorities, with the objective of helping participants understand the fundamental hydrological and hydraulic modelling issues necessary for the delivery of robust flood risk (FRA) and drainage impact assessments (DIA) / conceptual drainage designs. Current software facility and visualisation tools can often enhance understanding but can also lead to a reduced reliance on technical comprehension; and to rigorous model schematisation, parameterisation and numerical model output checks being overlooked. The course will benefit those responsible for reviewing river modelling outputs as part of flood risk assessment and drainage impact assessments for planning.

The standard delegate fee is £599.00 (excluding VAT at 20%), this includes all documentation, lunch and refreshments.


Further details on these courses can be found on the HR Wallingford training website (training@hrwallingford.com) where you can book your place via the online registration form. Please note, if you are interested in booking more than one place or onto more than one course, discounts are available. 


Training courses with Lancaster University and JBA Consulting: flood and coastal risk management 

Forecasting and Extreme Event Response – 31 January, 1, 2, 15, 16 February 2018

This five-day course (split into a 3-day and 2-day block) will introduce commercially available models for real time flood forecasting and warning systems and the concepts of variability, uncertainty and accuracy in short term forecasting. Delegates will also be introduced to longer term climate prediction and the concepts and principals of uncertainty. The module will include a simulated flood response exercise to enable delegates to understand how forecasting is applied and how uncertainty and variability in forecasting is dealt with in a real world context and influences the decision making process.

The standard delegate fee is £980.00, and includes all documentation, lunch and refreshments. You may opt to undertake formal assessment and have this course contribute to a PGCert or higher qualification.

Integrated Systems for Sustainable Surface Water Management – 9, 10, 11, 24, 25 May 2018

This five-day course (split into a 3-day and 2-day block) will provide a foundation in flood risk related responsibilities and assessment and introduce the key concepts in urban hydrology and sustainable drainage systems (SuDS). Practical application of SuDS in the context of the emerging guidance and legislation will be covered using case studies of SuDS implementation in a variety of situations. Delegates will learn about the design of SuDS systems, from outline design concepts to assessment of performance, estimation of flow and water quality loading.

The standard delegate fee is £980.00, and includes all documentation, lunch and refreshments. You may opt to undertake formal assessment and have this course contribute to a PGCert or higher qualification.
