legionella training courses

We offer a flexible range of training courses which include basic Legionella awareness, advanced Legionella Management, Manual Handling, Water Hygiene Blue Card and Health & Safety. Our training sessions are run at regular intervals and can be tailored to suit your specific company needs. Training can be delivered at your own premises, or at our offices in Belfast. There is no minimum delegate group size and we can offer 1 on 1 training if required.

Our Legionella courses have been developed over many years and are tailored and therefore suitable for either the site operative carrying out routine monitoring or the chief executives who is responsible for the management of legionella. The current guidelines state that those who are appointed to carry out legionella control measures and strategies should be suitably informed, instructed and trained. At Coral, we cover all aspects of these requirements.

The Water Hygiene Card Course is designed for those who work in the production of drinking water supplied by the regional water companies. The course objective is to provide a basic understanding of how important it is to maintain good hygiene standards whilst working with potable water. It has been developed by Energy and Utility Skills and holders of this card will appear on the Energy and Utility Skills Register (EUSR). In the industry the Water Hygiene Card is often referred to as ‘the blue card’ or ‘the blue water card’. It is more frequently a requirement when working on sites operated by Health Trusts and utility suppliers.


The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 require employers to ensure that all employees are trained and competent in manual handling. Our Manual Handling training courses are aimed at giving those the understanding on how to manage the work and minimise their manual handling risks and reduce chances of injury. It will also help you to understand more about the risks associated with manual handling, how to undergo a risk assessment and how to ensure appropriate control measures are put in place.

We can provide both IOSH Managing Safely and IOSH Working Safely training courses. The working safely course covers the essentials of health and safety in the workplace. The managing safely provides managers and supervisors with the knowledge and skills they need to manage health and safety within their teams.

Each course completes with a discussion forum to include a Q&A session and certificate.
