To complete the full Water Purification Systems course, students must complete both an online primer (4 hours) and a 2-day workshop. The online course is pre-recorded and can be accessed 4 weeks before the start date of the on-site workshop.
Learn the fundamentals of water purification in an off-grid or homestead environment for a family or small community. Although the course (especially during the online portion) covers several methods of purifying water, the focus of the hands-on workshop is building a full-scale slow-sand filtration system. We have built these systems at the school and various communities in the USA and abroad. It is one of the simplest and most complete methods of filtering water from biological (and other) contaminants. The resources are relatively simple to acquire, anywhere in the world, and the concepts are simple but take some practice to achieve correctly.
