Welcome to the 2016 Short Courses Programme

The strategy of ICE WaRM's Short Course Programme is to build professional and technical capabilities across a wide range of water-focused organisations, closing the gaps between research, policy, education and practice.

ICE WaRM Short Courses are not for profit and follow a tradition of industry-led teaching where professionals give the benefit of their knowledge and experience to tomorrow's leaders. The ICE WaRM team look forward to welcoming you and your staff in 2016. Please don't hesitate to contact us regarding any scheduled or tailored courses.

Course presenters are leading thinkers and practitioners, drawn from a pool of over 100 water professionals working in government, industry, science and education. They are highly regarded mentors, committed to developing skills and knowledge and cultivating professional links within the water industry.

Course attendees come from a wide range of organisations in both public and private sectors and across various industries including agriculture, education, engineering, environment, irrigation, mining, research, water authorities and utilities.
