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.
