World Water Academy is the leading training institute for water management in the Netherlands and abroad.

Established in 1993 by the Dutch water sector in order to improve the quality of their employees with specific, practical knowledge on water issues. World Water Academy built up a wide experience in capacity building and training. It develops and delivers practical and technical courses for a wide range of water related topics. Each year about three thousand employees working for the water sector participate in one of the eighty courses (varying from 1 day to 20 days). The courses are based on the water sector's needs. And, as World Water Academy is financial independent, all costs have to be financed by the course fees and consultancy.

Both in the Netherlands and abroad, the World Water Academy offers training for all water related topics with various target groups and levels:

  • Drinking water (abstraction, production and distribution)
  • Sewerage & urban water management
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Water management & flood safety
  • Didactical topics

The quality of our training courses is of primary importance. We work according to ISO 9001 certified procedures. Every training course is evaluated by participants, clients, trainers and course managers. Developments in the water sector are included in our courses.
