Water & Wastewater Operator Certification Training Program

Treatment professionals epitomize a public health official. They are committed to  eliminating and preventing harm from materializing while producing and distributing safe drinking water to millions of Americans.  In Pennsylvania, a person may not independently make a process control decision at a water system unless that person is Board-certified.  To meet certification requirements, applicants must pass the appropriate examinations, meet minimum education requirements, and meet experience requirements.
