Our legionella online training course aims to help businesses and individuals who are in charges of premises, such as commercial offices or domestic dwellings understand more about their legal responsibilities and the health risks created by legionella bacteria.

It also helps the ‘dutyholders’ to establish legionella risk and define any action that should be taken to prevent the spread of legionella bacteria.

Developed alongside national health and safety professionals, the course is suitable for anyone in charge of premises, no matter how big or small they are. This includes all employers, self-employed people and anyone else in control of premises, such as landlords and letting agents.

The course is fully online and divided into three accessible, easy-to-understand modules – an introduction to legionella, legal responsibilities and managing legionella in water systems. Each section has multiple choice questions to answer.

The course takes around two hours to complete but there are no time limits so people can save their progress and return to at a later point.

At the end of the course, one they have passed (the test can be taken as many times as needed at no extra cost) they are then able to download a certificate.

The course is available to order here.
