Wastewater Land Application Exam Preparation and Review of Study Manual

The purpose of this course is to review wastewater land application (WWLA) and provide wastewater land application operators with the basic understanding needed to operate land application systems in an efficient and environmentally sound manner consistent with the requirements of their permit. This course will also review material to prepare for the WWLA certification exam as WWLA certification is required by rule for municipal WWLA operators. Although only municipal operators are required to be certified, industrial operators are strongly encouraged to take the course.

Details

The course fee is $75 and lunch is on your own. Bring a pencil and a calculator.

This training is for 1.4 CEUs for wastewater. You must attend both days to receive IBOL CEUs.
