NSF hosts a variety of public training courses in key geographic locations worldwide, focused on various current and emerging topics in the water and wastewater industry. This includes training on large water supply product standards such as NSF/ANSI 60, NSF/ANSI 61 and NSF/ANSI 50. We also provide training on prevention of disease and injury associated with building water systems – see each tab to the left for more detailed information. Our team of industry and public health experts develops and maintains educational materials that reflect the most relevant industry practices and trends. We also offer webinars on key topics for the water and wastewater industry.

NSF/ANSI 50

This one-day course is the perfect way for recreational water equipment and chemical manufacturers to gain knowledge about the NSF/ANSI 50 certification process and technical requirements. Regulatory officials and operators/managers at recreational water facilities will gain valuable insight into the public health protection provided by the standard as well. Products covered include treatment chemicals, chemical feeders and generators, controllers, UV, filtration, pumps and skimmers. Attendees receive a course guidebook, a copy of the NSF certification policies and the NSF/ANSI 50 standard in both electronic and hard copies.

NSF/ANSI 60

This one-day course is the perfect way for chemical manufacturers, blenders, and distributors to gain knowledge about the NSF/ANSI 60 certification process and technical requirements. In addition, manufacturers' representatives will be better able to explain the meaning and value of NSF/ANSI 60 certification to their customers.

Regulatory officials and water utility personnel will also gain valuable insight into the public health protection offered by NSF/ANSI 60 from this course.

Course participants will learn:

  • Definitions for the terms used in NSF/ANSI 60
  • Formulation review and toxicological evaluation requirements
  • Literature and product marking/labeling requirements
  • The status of current regulatory requirements for NSF/ANSI 60
  • Requirements for chemical re-packagers, transfer facilities and distributors
  • NSF certification policies that govern systems listed under this standard

Attendees receive a course guidebook, a copy of the NSF certification policies and the NSF/ANSI 60 standard in both electronic and hard copies.

NSF/ANSI 61

This one-day course is designed for manufacturers of drinking water system components and regulators responsible for product approvals. Attendees will learn about the design, formulation and marking requirements for drinking water system components, and the NSF certification policies that govern product listings to this standard.

The course covers:

  • Formulation review and toxicological evaluation requirements
  • Test protocols for each category of material, component, or device
  • Definitions for key terms in NSF/ANSI 61
  • Literature and product marking requirements
  • Status of current regulatory requirements for NSF/ANSI 61
  • NSF product certification process
  • Lead-free requirements under the U.S. Safe Driving Water Act, certifications to NSF/ANSI 372 and more

Attendees receive a course guidebook, a copy of the NSF certification policies and the NSF/ANSI 61 standard in both electronic and hard copies.

Building Water Systems

Hazards associated with building water systems -- including microbial hazards Legionella, Pseudomonas and non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) –– cause a significant number of serious illnesses and deaths.

New standards, directives and regulations are structured on the principles of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP), a systematic, science-based methodology that has proven effective at preventing hazards from harming people. HACCP provides a standardized, yet flexible framework for identifying and managing physical and chemical process parameters that can be reliably measured and controlled in real time. HACCP, best known for its successful, widespread use in food safety, has been adapted specifically for use in building water systems. It is increasingly being used by major healthcare providers, prominent educational institutions, and commercial/industrial property owners.

This intensive two-day course provides a thorough understanding of prevention of disease and injury associated with building water systems, and the practical knowledge needed to apply HACCP principles to real-world facilities.

In the first day of training, attendees learn the fundamentals of HACCP theory, terminology and practice. In the second day, attendees build on this knowledge by participating in an intensive, hands-on workshop. Through a series of activities and practical exercises, the workshop teaches participants how to develop and implement a HACCP-based water management program plan for multiple hazards associated with building water systems.

Benefits

Our training allows you to learn from experts while sharing best practices with colleagues from across the globe. We host our public courses in many U.S. cities in addition to our headquarters in Ann Arbor, Mich.

We develop and maintain educational materials to ensure your staff keeps pace with the most relevant industry practices and trends. We provide the tools and resources you need to understand the certification process and regulatory environments around some of the largest industry standards and public health concerns.

Why Work With NSF?

NSF provides an extensive array of services to help ensure the quality and safety of water supply products and their impact on public health. NSF is well respected by manufacturers, public health officials and drinking water utilities. Our experience working with manufacturers and national, state and provincial regulatory agencies provides us with the knowledge and expertise to provide valuable, in-depth training courses on a variety of topics.

Expert Trainers – NSF’s courses are presented by knowledgeable water quality and safety experts who possess scientific and academic backgrounds along with the hands-on industry experience. This allows them to effectively communicate relevant course information and the latest issues related to water systems and safety.

Clarification – Do you have questions regarding the NSF product testing and certification process or the NSF standards or policies that cover your products? NSF training seminars provide an open forum to ask all questions about the certification and regulatory requirements that apply to your specific line of products.

Regulatory Insight – NSF has dedicated regulatory compliance staff who can provide information about updates to codes, policies and federal, state and local requirements for certification and compliance.
