Take your wastewater operations career to the next level!

If you're planning to sit for a Level 2 or higher New Jersey "C" wastewater collection system license exam, you are required to complete and pass a 45-hour Advanced Wastewater Collection Systems course.

This class has been designed to meet the NJDEP requirement and help you prepare for success on your wastewater license exam. It consists of 15 three-hour sessions. In this course, you'll learn the theory, science and practical applications of the most critical wastewater operations from our new instructor John Ludington.

Topics covered in the Advanced Wastewater Collection Systems course include:

  • NJDEP rules and regulations governing wastewater collection systems
  • Hydraulics and flow measurement
  • Inspection techniques for new and existing sewers
  • Math and calculation reviews relating to wastewater operations
  • Sewer cleaning, repair and replacement
  • Grease and odor control

Preparation for wastewater licensing exams will be a primary focus, and you'll have the opportunity to take a practice exam and discuss the results in class.

If you're planning to take a C3 or C4 exam, this class can also serve as a great refresher!
