We offer periodic introductory and advanced training courses in the areas of:
• Water Supply
• Sewer and Stormwater
• Integrated Catchment Modelling
• River Systems
• Asset Management and Mobile solutions
Our most common courses are:
Introduction to InfoWorks WS Pro
This two-day course is designed to introduce the functionality of the InfoWorks WS Pro software. The course explains the data handling capability, file structure and basic functionality of InfoWorks, and features basic case studies to demonstrate the features covered. By the end of the course trainees will be able to import data from a variety of sources, check data for errors and manipulate it, run simulations to test scenarios, and use live data files to compare model results with field data.
Introduction to InfoWorks ICM with 2D
This course is aimed at anyone new to InfoWorks ICM as well as users who have experience of the InfoWorks suite of software. The InfoWorks ICM software will be introduced, looking at the database management tools, the viewing tools and the model creation tools. The attendee will create an integrated urban drainage model within InfoWorks ICM combining an urban drainage model with a fluvial model. This will be built on to give an introduction to the 2D capabilities of the InfoWorks ICM software and a basic 1D-2D model will be produced. The use of external data for 2D mesh building will be explored and some of the more advanced mesh editing functionality will be introduced. Interpretation of results and diagnostics will also be investigated.
Introduction to InfoAsset Manager
This course is the starting point for anyone needing to utilise InfoAsset Manager Network Information Management System for water or wastewater asset management. Upon completion of this course participants will be able to use InfoAsset Manager to effectively manage and organise large asset databases in a workgroup environment. Students will also be able to create links to GIS, edit and validate data and integrate and utilise survey and condition assessment data.

Underpinning any asset management system is data. The first step in any asset management process should be to focus on the consolidation of existing information and data held in different silos by different departments in an organization. The next step
will be to report on the quality, completeness and reliability of this data.
JBCL uses InfoAsset Manager to consolidate all the information a utility owns, and will integrate with existing systems. Once the asset registry has started to be organised InfoAsset Manager will then provide the validation and quality control tools to check the completeness, accuracy, consistency and connectivity of the plethora of data. InfoAsset Manager will also enable a business to define an operating procedure (protocol) for adding new data and information while running quality control procedures to accept or reject the data.
It is crucial for organisations starting out on an asset management program to ensure that data consolidation, quality control, and data collection protocols are high priorities. With data that is verified and audited according to an agreed company standard, it is possible for organisations to be confident in the operational, planning and financial decisions they will have to make when undertaking proactive, preventative and responsible asset management.
If you want us to help you use InfoAsset Manager to create, store, improve, validate, interrogate and report on your asset attribute, incident, survey, spatial, work order, repair/intervention and resource data please get in touch with us via phone or email.
There are many beneficial outcomes from producing a working reticulation model, including the ability to assess the capability of the existing system to meet expected growth and the ability to analyse different operational regimes and zoning options. The models can also be used to determine the correct pipe sizing upgrades that are being carried out as part of an annual mains replacement programme. The mains that are due to be replaced can be checked and alternative methods of supply analysed. The staff at Jeff Booth Consulting are experts in modelling water supply reticulation networks, having carried out numerous model build, calibration and scenario analysis exercises.
Leak Detection and Pressure Management
We have carried out leak detection studies for many years involving the engagement of specialist leak detection contractors. These studies have demonstrated that leakage control is a very important facet of a water managers portfolio. Alongside this, we have designed and project managed pressure management studies for a number of local authorities throughout NZ. The use of pressure management techniques reduces the capital and operational expenditure for Councils.
