McCrae Training, as a SQA accredited training provider, deliver WIRS training packages inclusive of SVQ’s, National Water Hygiene, SW DOMS, Utility SHEA (Water) and other related courses.  

Our team of experienced assessors and trainers deliver WIRS training packages via a combination of centre assessment sessions and on-site observations.  Our approach is to work with SLOs where on-site observations are aligned to actual programmes of main and service laying site works, therefore assessing operatives and supervisors with minimal disruption and loss of productivity.

SLO staff following a WIRS training package with McCrae Training will vary in duration dependant upon the frequency water mains and services are being installed, their prior experience and previous training and qualifications.
