Description

One of the goals of the program is to bring more people to the field of plant operations. Another very important goal is to enhance the understanding, awareness and abilities of practicing operators and those who aspire to become operators.

During this program, the operator is exposed to the basic information which one must know in order to become licensed and advance through the various levels of licensure. No attempt is made to structure the short school as a direct prep school for licensure, although the benefits to those taking licensure examinations are evident.

Learner Outcomes

The program is divided into five short courses. The first level or first year is designed to be introductory. A person need not have any prior training or experience to enroll in the first year class. Additionally, one need not have a job at a treatment plant to enroll.
