30 November 2017 @ 4:00 PM - 1 December 2017 @ 4:00 PM


The Water Institute of Southern Africa (WISA) and its Process Controllers Division (Eastern Cape) cordially invite all water and wastewater Process Controllers to attend its 4th Process Controller Workshop/Open Day which will be hosted in collaboration with the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS -Eastern Cape).

This event has become an annual iconic event on the WISA calendar which has grown tremendously due to its popularity for knowledge, skill & technology transfer, updates on the developments surrounding the status improvement of Process Controllers, the process control environment in general and networking amongst Process Controllers from across the Eastern Cape.

One of the objectives from the onset has been to rotate the venue of this event in order to provide the various municipalities an opportunity for exposure by showcasing its installations and the municipal area in general to the delegates attending the event.

The Process Controller Division of WISA rightfully acknowledges and values the role of all water and wastewater Process Controllers as a vital component of the Water Sector in ensuring the provision of safe drinking water to our citizens/communities and the treatment of wastewater to a standard that is not harmful to our precious water resources and the receiving environment. The workshop places the emphasis on providing a platform for empowerment and recognition of Process Controllers in the Eastern Cape. It will therefore primarily focus on the key areas within water and wastewater treatment processes that have a bearing on the efficient operations of a treatment plant, with the intention to equip Process Controllers with the knowledge and practical skills to operate their plants to the best of their ability, possibly exceeding the quality standards.

This year’s theme will address the fundamentals of both water and wastewater treatment process control with a different perspective, our presenters/facilitators will all be Professional Process Controllers.  As per our usual modus operandi we will also be having interesting exhibitions from suppliers and key players in the sector. As part of our revised programme of activities for this event we will be having an awards evening on the evening of 30 November 2017 to recognise excellence in the workplace which will set the tone for this auspicious occasion. Municipalities will be requested to submit motivations for these awards. (Guidelines will be provided)

The 2017 PC Workshop/Open Day will have the following special accompaniments:

  1. CPD points for Professional Process Controllers
  2. Group awards for the best dressed Municipality (The PC Division Logo will be provided conditionally)
  3. Meet & Greet

Furthermore, this initiative aims to contribute constructively to the enhancement of both the Blue and Green Drop statuses of Water Service Authorities and Water Service Providers in the Eastern Cape, by bringing together the fraternity of Process Controllers and encouraging best practice in our methodologies. Participants will also receive certificates for their roles in the workshop that will afford their respective organisations Blue and Green Drop Certification bonus points.

The theme of the workshop will be, Adding value to Eastern Cape Process Controller Landscape”
