Why Train with InSite?

Our current webinar training sessions are held online in real time.

While we have many pre recorded training modules and online training portals, these live webinars get in depth to not only the InSite program but why InSite helps solves problems you may face when creating Integrated Water Management projects. You will leave with plenty of new knowledge about the InSite program as well as meeting council requirements.

Once you have completed training in the live webinar you will also be given access to and up to date version of the training so that you can refer to it at a later time. Through our online training portal this will be accessible within 48 hours of the online webinar.
