Hands-on Training

The Centre recognizes that effective training for practical skills must be, at least in part, hands-on. To meet this need the Walkerton Clean Water Centre Research & Technology Institute, in collaboration with our Training Institute, is continuously working to increase the offering of courses using more elements of hands-on training.
