Description

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 online 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 include:

  • 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
  • Valves/hydrants/meters
  • 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.

The best and brightest from across the NJ water industry will be participating. Do not miss this unique opportunity! Special rates are available for holders of current NJ drinking water licenses (T, W, or VSWS only) and six (6) TCHs (drinking water only) are available for each day of the program.

Important Note:
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.
