Training Programs Offered for New York Wastewater Professionals

Two training programs are being offered in March for New York wastewater professionals. Both programs are approved for six contact hours toward renewal of a wastewater treatment plant operator certificate. They will run from 8:30 am - 3:30 pm each day and will be held at the Washington County Municipal Center, Fort Edward, NY. The courses are:

  • Proper Sampling for Process and Reporting - March 1, 2016. This course explains and demonstrates proper sampling procedures. Topics to be reviewed include the development of a sampling plan, proper sampling locations, sampling devices and containers, preservation and holding times, and chain-of-custody procedures.
  • Laboratory Practices - March 2, 2016. This course provides wastewater professionals with the opportunity to learn the laboratory tests for SPDES permitting and plant operations.

The New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) is providing these programs in cooperation with the NYSDEC. Register for the training at NEIWPCC's website.
