A general introduction to the use of MDSuDS at pre-planning stage to assess the existing topography and pre-development situation in terms of greenfield runoff rates and volume. The course then covers how MDSuDS can show the extent of each SuDS system and generate scenarios to ensure that the maximum potential for the land has been delivered for the client with the minimum land take.
Who will benefit?
Developers, consultants and approving authorities would all benefit when motivated to implement a SuDS solution.
What will they learn?
The course covers the key aspects of a SuDS design from concept through to detail design to provide evidence to an approving authority covering water quantity, quality and SuDS treatment train scenarios.
The courses will be conducted using GoToTraining software, which allows two way communication between the instructor and the class.
To participate you will need two screens, one to run the software and the other to watch the presenter or their screen. A headset with microphone would also be very useful.
You will operate the software using a ‘virtual’ computer which we will provide and which you can access from your computer, whether from home or in the office. We will provide you with login details a day or so before the course starts. This virtual machine includes the software and data required to run the course. In other words, there is no need for you to install the software on your computer, to participate in the training.
Training notes will be posted to you in advance of the training.
Class sizes will be strictly limited as we understand the challenges associated with remote learning.

Once you have reserved your space, you will receive a follow up email with registration information.
All the essential skills required to provide a compliant SuDS design, including:
- Identify the existing blue/green corridors
- Pre-development greenfield runoff rates
- Pre-development greenfield runoff volume
- Background pollution concentrations
- SuDS train scenarios
- Pre v Post-development results
Practical examples of designing individual SuDS structures and how to develop a SuDS ‘system’ will be covered.
The course combines tutor-led teaching with worked examples and hands-on learning. Comprehensive course notes are provided.
