AWWOA Training Update

posted on May 22 2020

Classroom Training

Due to COVID-19, the AWWOA is postponing all in-class training leading up to June 19th, 2020. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to evaluate the situation and act in the best interests of our members.

While the situation is continuously evolving, the AWWOA anticipates in-class training to return to normal with our new calendar starting in September. We will continue to send updates as more information becomes available.

If you are currently registered in a course, your registration and placement will be automatically held for the next available date. If you prefer to receive a refund, please fill out the refund request form. (Please note that a placement will not be held for refunded registrations.)

Questions can be directed to training@awwoa.ca.

AWWOA Online Training Options

AWWOA has introduced an initiative to help operators continue to obtain needed CEUs and prepare for certification exams during isolation times. All AWWOA online training options are being offered at a 50% reduced rate. This initiative will continue until classroom training resumes.
