The National Centre for Research and Training was established in 2009 and has a long-standing reputation as Australia's leading groundwater training provider. We are an internationally acclaimed research and training organisation at the forefront of groundwater professional training development in Australia.
The one-day course is designed for non-specialists who require a basic understanding of the role of groundwater, and an overview of the types of aquifers common to the area.
The Australian Groundwater School is vital for Australian professionals working with groundwater. Our flagship course, is 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...
This 3-day course is designed for professionals and students keen to learn about groundwater in mining. While a focus of the course will be mine dewatering, other key topics will include management of waste rock and tailings, management of groundwater as part of site-wide operational management, environmental impact assessment, and planning for closure. Groundwater will be presented in the context of: mining, processing and site-wide management of...
This course gives participants an understanding of the important groundwater processes related to soil and groundwater pollution. The course reviews the fundamentals of groundwater hydrology, and the mechanisms of soil and groundwater contamination. Different types of contaminants are considered, including LNAPLs (light non-aqueous phase liquids) and DNAPLs (dense non-aqueous phase liquids).
Fractured rock aquifers are fundamentally different to other types of groundwater systems. Methods traditionally used for groundwater investigations in porous media aquifers are not directly applicable to fractured rocks. This course will cover state-of-the-art methods for investigating groundwater flow and contaminant transport in fractured rocks. Topics will include hydraulic testing, solute and contaminant transport and groundwater modelling.
The course is designed to introduce the participants to the model-based quantification of groundwater quality problems from various industries and disciplines (contaminant hydrology, mining, water supply).
This course aims to provide an understanding of natural groundwater chemistry, which is an important tool in managing groundwater resources and water quality, in particular. It will provide a basic skill set which will address many pressing challenges facing groundwater hydrogeologists in Australia. These include, but are not limited to, examples of:
This three-day course will review and provide participants with hands-on experience in a selection of common and novel techniques used to monitor and characterise groundwater systems and surface water-groundwater interactions. Short presentations and reading material will provide a theoretical background, after which the techniques will be applied in a series of informative, practical field trips.
The fundamentals of managing recharge projects in aquifers.
