All water jetting courses are City & Guilds-accredited and delivered via registered training providers by WJA-approved water jetting training instructors.

Course content is regularly updated in line with technological advances and changes to safety and regulatory requirements, so trainees and their employers can be certain they are receiving the best possible instruction.

Water Jetting Safety Awareness

Our entry-level course is Water Jetting Safety Awareness. This is a mandatory one-day class-based course covering all main areas of water jetting operation and safety, including types of water jetting, water pressure and flow rates, risk assessment, and the use of safety clothing.

At the end of the course, delegates must pass a 20-question multiple choice questionnaire. The Water Jetting Safety Awareness course must be retaken every three years to retain registration with the WJA.

We strongly recommend that operatives should combine the Water Jetting Safety Awareness course with a relevant practical course to obtain the most thorough instruction in safe and effective water jetting.

Practical Water Jetting Training

If the Water Jetting Safety Awareness course is successfully completed, candidates can learn hands-on skills by attending specific training courses that include practical instruction.

These are:

  • Drain and Sewer Cleaning (half day)
  • Surface Preparation (half day)
  • Tube and Pipe Cleaning (half day)
  • Hydrodemolition (full day)

We also offer a standalone full day Pressure Washing course. 

Candidates must pass a questionnaire to complete these courses. Unlike Water Jetting Safety Awareness, they only have to be successfully completed once. However, should you not renew your Safety Awareness certificate, you will lose your modules and have to sit them again.
