About our Basic Legionella Management Training

Current legislation set out by the Health and Safety at Work Act, along with the HSE’s updated code of practice known as L8, state that companies and building owners have a legal duty to manage Legionella.

Our interactive basic Legionella management course is aimed at all employers and staff to assist them in identifying the danger that Legionella poses, as well as covering ways to identify and assess sources of risk from Legionella on the premises.

It also gives you enough knowledge to get a Legionella control programme off the ground yourself – or make confident, informed choices when commissioning others to take this on for you.

By the end of our basic Legionella management training course, you will learn about Legionnaires’ Disease, its history, how it spreads, and how to identify risk areas.

You will also understand the legislation, responsibilities, and consequences of non-compliance and learn how to manage risk and prevent the disease.

Additionally, you will learn about Legionella management, record-keeping, and practical prevention tasks, including testing and monitoring.

Introduction to our basic legionella management training

Target audience

Our basic legionella management training course is primarily aimed at building and facilities managers and maintenance professionals that have nominated responsibilities for water systems.


Lack of training and awareness of Legionella have been shown to be factors in many outbreaks of Legionella. Having adequate training and carrying out appropriate checks can ensure water system safety.

The course is approved by CPD, IIRSM & Gatehouse Awards, giving you peace of mind and delegates increased confidence that the content is accurate and relevant.

Online training is flexible, efficient and cost-effective, meaning the candidate can progress through the modules at their own pace and in their own time, so they can fit the training in around their work and personal life.

Further progression

There is a wide range of other health and safety courses available in the eLearning suite that are relevant to the same industries as these courses.

There are also business skills courses, such as Leadership Skills and Developing Teamwork which could be of value to managers and team leaders that may also have responsibilities for buildings and facilities.
