2021 Training Update
Due to current provincial regulations and continued uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, AWWOA has cancelled the February 2021 training offerings of this course. All registrants affected will be contacted for registration/refund options.

Course Information
This two day course will assist operators with math problem solving in preparation to write certification exams (Small Systems, Level I, Level II or III/IV). The course was specifically developed to increase your water & wastewater math knowledge and problem solving skills. It will focus on important math principles and the support systems used in water and wastewater operations.

NOTE: This course was completely re-developed in late 2016 and approved for new CEUs by Alberta Environment and Parks.
Math and Support Systems are two components found in the provincial certification exams.
