Math & Support Systems for Operators


1.2 CEUs


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.
