    We run an open programme of events as well as client-specific courses

Training

Our open programme of events covers topics at both foundation and practitioner levels in water and marine hydraulics, engineering, and environmental management. Course tutors are world renowned, and have extensive practical experience in both consultancy and research.

With all these events, our overriding aim is to share knowledge on best practice techniques, regulations as well as emerging technologies.

Regular fixtures include the Armourstone Users Group Meeting, River Hydrology and Hydraulics Course and Flood risk analysis and Management Course. Events covering flood management, urban drainage, engineering materials, coastal engineering and structures also make regular appearances on our programme.

All our events can be booked online on our dedicated events website. If you cannot see a course that meets your requirements, please contact us with details on the subject or area you are interested in.
