Water and Wastewater Treatment
Evening wastewater classes are for D and C level operators. B and A Class operators will also benefit from these courses by obtaining CEU's and getting valuable review material for B and A level exams. Operators can take any of the classes listed below for CEUs to keep their certifications current. People wishing to go into the wastewater field can take the entire series of wastewater classes without any experience and take their exam; however, it should be noted that you will not be issued the certificate until you have the required job experience. One year of job experience is required for each level. Exams are taken at other locations by arrangement with the SC Department of Labor, Licensing and Registration (LLR). 

Water, Wastewater, Water Distribution Short Schools
Short schools are intensive training sessions designed as a comprehensive overview for operators of water, water distribution, and wastewater treatment facilities who are preparing for the state certification exam. State "Standards of Performance" for operators are used as the topical outline for each Short School, and Sacramento Manuals are used as reference texts. Handouts, videos, demonstrations and practice tests are utilized in the training system.

Sacramento Manuals are reference texts for all Short Schools, as well as one reference for the SC state certification (ABC) exams. Manuals are issued at no cost for "D" and "B" level courses in Water Treatment, Physical/Chemical  Wastewater, Biological Wastewater and the "D" level Water Distribution courses. Students are asked to bring the manuals for "C" and "A" level courses.
