The Statistical Module is part of the Introduction to Flood Hydrology course. This module can be taken separately and provides tuition on the latest Flood Estimation Handbook statistical procedures for flood frequency estimation at both gauged and ungauged sites. This includes the use of the WINFAP 5 software.

The course will particularly benefit practitioners who wish to gain practical experience and an overarching understanding of the latest statistical methodologies and software. The course is suitable for both new users of the WINFAP 5 software and existing users who would like to consolidate their knowledge and learn more about the latest software.
