Event Details

The Australian Groundwater School is an intermediate-level course designed to build on our Groundwater Essentials courses. Scientific, policy and management personnel who want to gain a solid grounding in groundwater should strongly consider attending this course.

 

WHO IS PRESENTING?

Lectures, demonstrations and tutorials are given by leading groundwater professionals. Our presenters are experienced hydrogeologists and specialists in both public and private practice, from industry, universities and research agencies.

 

CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT POINTS

This course maybe recognised for CPD points in accordance to guidelines from Engineers Australia

Groundwater makes up about 17% of Australia’s accessible water resources, and up to 30% of our water consumption in certain regions. Droughts and climate change place pressure on our critical groundwater reserves; therefore, it is important that Australia has a well-informed workforce that is ready to tackle these challenges.

 

WHY IS THE COURSE IMPORTANT?

The Australian Groundwater School is vital for Australian professionals working with groundwater. Our flagship course, and the premier course of its type in Australasia, the Australian Groundwater School provides participants with a broad but rigorous introduction to groundwater.

Introducing hydrogeology, assessment methods, modelling, managed aquifer recharge, management, governance and more, the course truly encompasses the fundamentals of groundwater. We have expanded our Australian Groundwater School in Adelaide to include a one-day field trip – bringing the course to a full five days of groundwater learning. Delegates will have the opportunity to get out of the classroom and put theory into practice, visiting field sites. Read a short history on the Australian Groundwater School 1962 – 2008.
