New Training Options For Managing Drinking Water Systems In First Nations Communities
The Walkerton Clean Water Centre (WCWC), in partnership with Keewaytinook Okimakanak/Northern Chiefs Council, is focusing on projects that support drinking water operator training, certification and mentorship for First Nations communities.
For the first time, WCWC will be offering the course, Managing Drinking Water Systems in First Nations Communities, in a live virtual format. This course is designed as an introduction to management practices related to the drinking water systems in First Nations communities. It provides a high-level overview of drinking water systems, explores components of effective drinking water system management and provides resources and practical tools for consideration in developing or making improvements to current practices. This course is designed for First Nations Chiefs, Council and management who have operational responsibility for drinking water systems.
Each live training session will provide opportunities for interaction between the instructor and participants and will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. over two days. Two sessions are currently scheduled on February 3 and 4 and March 3 and 4, 2021. Participants will require access to a computer with internet connection, a camera and microphone. A course manual will be couriered to each participant prior to the session.

Drinking Water Training Available For First Nations Communities
Walkerton Clean Water Centre delivering two courses, Managing Drinking Water Systems in First Nations Communities, and Entry-Level Course for Drinking Water Operators for First Nations
The Walkerton Clean Water Centre (WCWC), in partnership with Keewaytinook Okimakanak and the Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation (OFNTSC), is pleased to announce the launch of a new drinking water training course — Managing Drinking Water Systems in First Nations Communities. The one-day course focuses on components of effective drinking water system management, resources and practical tools. The target audience for this course is individuals in management and supervisory positions in drinking water and those interested in becoming managers and supervisors. Training will be provided at no cost to participants, including all associated expenses.
The first public delivery of the new course was held May 2, 2019 in Dryden with 13 participants attending the course. Feedback on the course was excellent with 100 per cent of the participants rating it as good or excellent.
The new course builds on WCWC’s success delivering the Entry-Level Course for Drinking Water Operators for First Nations, which was tailored to reflect the needs of drinking water system operators in First Nations communities. Each course delivery is a two-week initiative with one week of supervised self-study and one week of practical hands-on training. Since 2017, more than 100 Indigenous participants have successfully completed the course.
WCWC is committed to providing drinking water training and support to help equip First Nations communities to provide safe drinking water.
