|TargetSolutions is excited to announce an all-new course: Effective Groundwater Supply Management. This dynamic, video-driven course provides water industry professionals with up-to-date training they need to utilize and maintain groundwater sources.|
Effective groundwater supply management is essential if groundwater resources are to remain viable for generations to come. Currently, groundwater volume exceeds the volume of fresh surface water by 20:1 and groundwater accounts for nearly half of the United States’ drinking water.
TargetSolutions’ all-new course from RedVector, Effective Groundwater Supply Management, provides water industry professionals with the up-to-date training they need to utilize and maintain groundwater sources without producing harmful effects.
This 1-hour course, produced by subject matter experts with extensive knowledge in the field, addresses current parameters and environmental concerns. Delivered in a video-driven format, a course narrator breaks down key topics into modules and guides learners through each lesson. These self-paced modules also offer engaging animations and images to better illustrate concepts and formulas.
By the end of this course, water industry personnel will be able to achieve the following objectives:
- Identify the basics of groundwater management techniques
- Describe the concept of safe groundwater yield
- Compare & contrast the “safe yield concept” and the “sustainability concept”
- Identify the environmental factors that determine groundwater withdrawal rates
- Identify basic components of groundwater flow
- Recognize basic groundwater flow equations
- Identify types of aquifer material
- Identify aquifer parameters such as porosity, yield, storage and hydraulic conductivity
As learners progress through these objectives, relevant in-course quizzes highlight important information and prepare learners for an end-of-course exam. After receiving a passing score, personnel will have completed the course and receive credit towards their water industry training.
“Groundwater management is quickly evolving. If these resources are going to remain sustainable, water industry professionals need to know the best practices for effective groundwater management. Presented in a video-based format with an instructor, this course covers topics ranging from the history of groundwater management to current conditions and environmental factors.” – Bryan Fitzgerald, Content Manager, TargetSolutions
