Entry-Level Course for Drinking Water Operators
CEU Value 7.0
The Entry-Level Course for Drinking Water Operators provides new operators with a basic understanding of water characteristics and pathogens, treatment and distribution processes, and the regulations that govern water quality. This course is intended to complement the on-the-job training that Operators in Training (OITs) receive from their employers.
The course consists of two components. The first involves approximately 40 hours of self-study. The self-study manual will be mailed to the registrant within five (5) business days of registration.
Once the first portion is completed, the participant must pass a self-administered exam in order to proceed to the classroom portion of the course.
The classroom session is one week in duration and consists of a final exam that covers subject areas addressed both in the self-study and classroom portions of the course.
This is a mandatory course required by all new operators. It must be completed within 3 years from the date an OIT certificate in drinking water treatment and/or distribution was issued.
