The Walkerton Clean Water Centre launched the course to support water professionals who require a refresh of their math skills
WCWC is pleased to announce the launch of a new course, Conversion Math.
This workshop-style course will teach participants how to apply conversions that relate to water operations. Key concepts such as base units, order-of-operation calculations and the basics of the metric system using distance, area and volume will be reviewed. Common units of measurement will be discussed, with a focus on how these units are expressed. Participants will perform calculations using conversion tables to solve for either metric or imperial units. Conversion Math places special emphasis on common units used in the water industry, including those related to temperature, pressure, velocity, flow, dosage, density and feed rates.
This course is directed to treatment and distribution operators who require a refresh of their math skills. The course may also serve as a precursor to Fundamental Math for those with limited math knowledge.
Conversion Math will be offered through both classroom and virtual sessions to support water professionals across Ontario. Successful participants will receive 0.7 Continuing Education Units.Read More
