Training Services

Industry is currently undergoing rapid growth due to nationwide infrastructure spending, renewed activity in the mining sector and a tightening environmental compliance landscape. This all leads to the requirement to bring in new staff to organisations, often who are relatively inexperienced. The effort required to train these personnel during periods of rapid growth can be a huge challenge, and one that can lead to reduced performance levels or lost business. Furthermore, it is critical to bring in and solidify new skills in an organisation as industry undergoes technological shifts (we investigate this further in our article Human Capital Depreciation: The hidden risk of technological innovation).

Our training utilises our online training portal, providing clients with access to all learning materials before and after the session, and ensuring face-to-face components concentrate on the hands-on and practical skills. 

HydroTerra provides training in: 

  • Environmental monitoring instrumentation
    • how to use equipment in the field to obtain reliable measurements
  • How to calibrate and maintain monitoring equipment
  • How to collect soil, groundwater, surface water and ground gas measurements and samples.
