Why Create the Level 4 Diploma?

The sector required the development of an entirely new framework based more on the flexibility of knowledge required for the many and varied roles that now exist for existing personnel and graduate entrants to the water industry.

Watertrain was contracted by the Awarding Organisation for the water industry (CABWI) to develop the Level 4 Diploma in Water Industry Operations and Management to provide a qualification for all management roles within the Water Industry.

The Water Industry was involved in a process of consultation throughout the development of the qualification and supported the concept of multi-pathway qualification with a common core which will fulfil the industry’s business needs.

The Level 4 qualification offers natural progression from Level 2 and 3 roles and has the flexibility for candidates to complete a full qualification in the area of the business they specialise in.
