Upcoming Training Opportunity in New York State for Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators

New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) will be conducting three courses across New York State in April through June 2020. Please see the attachments for more information on the courses, including the cost and how to sign up.


Wednesday - Thursday, April 29 - 30, 2020
Hazen & Sawyer, White Plains, NY
8:30AM - 3:30PM Daily. Sign-in begins at 8:00AM.

With the rapidly changing technology in our field and the ever-present need to prepare operators to qualify for and pass certification exams, quality training for water and wastewater professionals has never been more important. This program is designed for environmental professionals who are responsible for developing and delivering training programs for water and wastewater operators.

Participants will gain an understanding of the basic characteristics of adult learners, the ways to overcome resistance to learning, and the instructor’s role in the success of the training experience. We will look at what the training needs of our workforce are, and what material is available to help create effective training sessions. Participants will learn how to design and develop a training program, present material to an audience, create a learning environment that is conducive to learning, and lead a training session with greater confidence and credibility.
