Since 1940, the Water and Wastewater Training Program has been providing water and wastewater professionals with the required training for obtaining state required licenses in the water utilities industry.
The Water and Wastewater Program consists of training in water, wastewater, on-site sewage facilities, backflow prevention, customer service inspection and terrorism awareness and preparedness for water utilities. The program offers a variety of courses ranging from entry level to advanced level. In addition to traditional face-to-face training, the program also offers several courses online and through correspondence for those operators that may live in a rural area.
State-of-the-art equipment, materials and instructional media ensure that students benefit from the latest technical information and practical experience. The program currently has five “hands-on” mobile trailers that enhance the learning of the participants with real life situations.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) awards credit hours toward licensing for all approved courses.
