​​NSW Health has developed training on Legionella control in cooling water systems together with TAFE NSW. The training provides an overview of the science relating to Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks, cooling water system management, and the roles, responsibilities, and requirements under the Public Health Regulation 2022.

​Completion of this training is a requirement for approval to conduct audits of cooling water systems. Other stakeholders who would benefit from completing this training course include:

  • occupiers and building managers
  • water treatment, mechanical services, and industry technicians (duly qualified person)
  • competent persons
  • independent auditors (must complete the training course in order to be approved to carry out this role)
  • authorised officers (environmental health officers in local government authorities and Public Health Units)
  • laboratory officers.

The training is based on nationally recognised units of competency. For further information please contact TAFE NSW on 131 601.
