The water school


Corsi di formazioneTraining has a central role and is an indispensable organisational tool for companies operating in the public utility sector. This is a guiding concept of the SMAT Water School.

Present on the educational market for over fifteen years, SMAT plans and organises training and professional refresher courses for network service company operators. The training offering is aimed at developing roles and professional profiles.

The SMAT catalogue includes first level theoretical-practical courses aimed at efficient management of tasks and roles, and advanced level courses aimed at developing knowledge and consolidated personal skills.

Technological innovation and legal-managerial refresher courses are two areas treated by the SMAT “Water School” management training section.

In the technical-specialised area, specific attention is devoted to topics related to interconnecting information systems and remote monitoring of networks and network services.

Some themes in the training catalogue:

  • management and optimisation of drinking water and sanitation systems
  • planning and maintenance of water and sewer networks
  • industrial dumping monitoring systems
  • system and network operator safety
  • network and water analysis laboratory refresher courses.

The training centre has three multimedia rooms and an equipped workshop for hands-on practice.

In addition to classroom lessons, the method includes practice, case histories, technical visits to sites and systems.

The SMAT Water School also provides after-school assistance: the service is available to everyone who wants to develop topics related to the treated themes. Specific training interventions are tailor-made upon request of specific companies.

The SMAT training team is also involved in the specialised “Water resource and water service management” Master course promoted and organised by Hydroaid, the International Water Development School.
