Introductory / Intermediate Wastewater

The course is designed for the temporary certified operator with basic wastewater skills.  The operator taking this course will generally have one to three years of operating experience.  Information covered in this session should be helpful with some parts of the certification exams, but in no way assures one of passing.  Due to a large majority of operators at this experience level taking the State certification exams, no final exam has been given for this session in previous years. This year we will again offer an exam for those not taking the State Certification test.  This will limit the session to 32 TRE credit hours for those taking certification, but will allow for 32 plus 1.5x (16) credit hours for those passing the short course exam (for a total of 48 credit hours).  Attendees have the option to take the State certification exam to be given on Friday, June 6.  Pre‑registration for the State certification exam is mandatory and is the sole responsibility of each operator.  This course will make use of instructor hand outs and note taking by the attendee.  Topics include:

-  Advanced Treatment
-  Intermediate Math
-  Activated Sludge Process Control
-  Disinfection
-  Safety
-  Pumps
-  Sludge Thickening & Digestion
-  Wastewater Overview
-  Wastewater Lab
