The New Jersey section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA-NJ) and the NJAES Office of Continuing Professional Education have teamed up to offer drinking water operators an excellent opportunity to refresh and review prior to taking state licensing exams.
If you have failed a water licensing exam three times
(T, W or VSWS), under the NJDEP licensing regulations you
are required to take a refresher or review class prior to taking
the exam again. This course will fulfill that requirement. Are you currently licensed and planning to take a higher level
exam in the future? Do you just feel a bit "rusty" and want to
gain back your edge when it comes to day-to-day operational
knowledge? Whichever category you fall into, this is the
course for you!
Combining the Association of Boards of Certification's (ABC) "need-to-know" guides with statistics from recent NJDEP
exams and a wealth of professional, real-life experience from
our presenters, this course will give you the confidence to
conquer the "rough spots" on licensing exams or the "tough
spots" faced daily in the workplace. Specific topics will
- Water treatment techniques
- Pumps/chemical feeds
- Testing/sampling procedures and protocols
- Facility and equipment safety
- Water quality regulations
- Math and its applications throughout the workplace
- Electrical safety and maintenance
The primary course consists of two full days. Presentations on
the optional third day will focus on areas of concern
from recent past exams. You will also have the opportunity to
work in small groups on common problem areas.
If you are taking this course to fulfill the requirement for a refresher course prior to an exam re-take, you must attend all three (3) days.
Drinking Water Operator Review Course Coordinator:
Course coordinator Bill Mitchell (Trenton Water Works) has lined up the best and brightest
