Introducing Waste Water Trainer, Danny Connor

   12 February 2024     News

We’re pleased to introduce Develop’s Waste Water Trainer, Danny Connor, a seasoned professional with nearly three decades of experience in the water and drainage industry.

Before Danny took on the role of lead waste water and water jetting trainer at Develop, he spent close to 30 years as a jetting engineer and CCTV drainage engineer. His professional endeavors took him across the United Kingdom, Europe, and the Middle East, where he gained hands-on experience and a deep understanding of the nuances of the water and drainage industry. 

What sets Danny apart as a trainer is his hands-on experience ‘in the trenches.’ Delegates quickly realise that their instructor has walked the same path they are on, creating a unique bond of understanding and respect. This connection fosters an environment where theoretical knowledge seamlessly merges with real-world application, providing a comprehensive and transformative learning experience.

Danny explains,

When delegates realise that I’ve walked the same path and have hands-on experience ‘in the trenches’ so to speak, it garners respect for my expertise because they know I’ve actually practiced what I’m preaching.

Whilst Develop primarily specialise in waste water and high pressure water jetting training for the drainage industry, the organisation also serves surprising sectors. For instance, one clients requires water jetting training for a rather unexpected purpose – cleaning critical parts of submarines! It is really amazing how this ‘hidden job’ intersects such a wide variety of industries.
