The aim of the Legionella Awareness Course is as follows:
To raise awareness of Legionella Control issues
To promote understanding of risks and their control or prevention
To inform delegates of their individual responsibilities
To equip delegates with the necessary information to monitor a site in accordance with the latest government guidance ACOP L8
