Training to work on a Melbourne Water site

If you plan on working either for Melbourne Water, or on one of our sites, you will need to complete specific training to ensure you’re kept safe while working with us.

Your Melbourne Water host will need to help you to determine what training is required for your type of work. If you’re not sure, please contact them and discuss.

Some training is completed online, and some more extensive training will need to be completed in-person.
