Water Treatment Classroom Training

Training is important to us.

Staff are our greatest asset, and if they are going to do their job properly, they need to be trained properly. Lutra use years of water and wastewater experience to help us train operational staff, providing both hands on and remote training options.

Whether you need someone to explain complex process theory such as how chlorine works or something practical like how to properly jar test, Lutra can send an engineer to deliver easy to understand hands-on training.

We also offer a digital training solution tailored to your specific plants, License To Operate (LTO) is aimed at supplementing hands-on operations and maintenance training for operators old and new alike.

License To Operate (LTO)- Tailored Digital Training

Designed to enhance and speed up traditional hands-on operator training, LTO is operations training for the digital age, utilising videos, animations, presentations and interactivity to teach complex tasks in an easy-to-understand way.

LTOs are uniquely tailored to your specific plants, with lessons based around your equipment and your SOPs.

LTO can take some of the pressure of training new recruits off your senior operators, be used as a refresher by any operator for more complex or less frequent tasks, and much more.

Capture Real Knowledge

Part of what makes LTOs so valuable and Unique is that they capture your own staff's knowledge to pass on to future generations of staff. Every plant has unique features and operational intricacies, that make not be shown in SOP's,  by recording how your experienced operators perform these tasks, we capture more than any manual would.

LTOs are usually produced by sending a videographer and a process engineer to your site/s to gather data, take pics and record videos, which is then all edited and put together into various lessons.
