The Short Courses for Water and Wastewater Operators offer training, information, and insights that will enable the water and wastewater systems personnel to operate their facilities in a more effective, safe, and economical manner.  The courses offer new ideas and serve as a “refresher” for existing operators.


​This year, due to Covid, several courses have been combined. The intent of combining courses is to provide training for those persons holding Operator-in-Training certificates as well as those persons who are already certified and are seeking recertification credits. 


​Click on the links below for a summary of each of the Short Courses.  Detailed information on the individual topics is in the complete Short Course Program, which you can download above.

Attendance at these classes in no way implies a guarantee that those participating in the sessions are assured of passing the State Certification exam. However, over the long history of the Short Courses, MDE results indicate that our courses have proven helpful in preparing for the exams.
