This is an advanced risk assessment course suitable for people with experience in legionella risk assessment or those who have attended a basic legionella risk assessment course. Candidates must have a good working knowledge of the microbiology, history and legislation related to the control of legionella. These aspects will not be covered in the formal instruction, however, supporting notes will be supplied which will form part of the end-of-course examination.
