WJA Training Standards


The Water Jetting Association (WJA) represents the water jetting industry and is the leading provider of high-pressure water jet training courses in the UK.

The WJA has reworked its rules to set a new standard for water jetting meaning all introductory water jetting training must include a practical skills assessment as of 1st January 2020.

In the updated rules, jetters must take a Safety Awareness course, which is class-based, along with a relevant ‘hands-on’ application module.

This means water jetting operatives will have had a minimum of two days of structured and assessed training, including one day of practicals. Doing so will be awarded with a WJA Certificate and Operational Photo ID Card.

Candidates who take the Safety Awareness course on its own will be issued with a Non-Operational WJA Photo ID Card.
