UEC Wastewater & Water Operator Training Program
Utility Engineering Consultants offers wastewater, water and safety training for utilities and municipalities throughout the state of Alabama.
Our training program includes wastewater and water operator certification courses and their related exam reviews for all grades; wastewater/water continuing education classes (CEHs) for certified operators; and safety classes allowed by ADEM regulations to be used for CEH’s.
Wastewater and water courses use the Sacramento manuals as the referenced textbooks recommended by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management. The manuals are not provided as part of the course fee but are recommended for each operator to have.
Wastewater and water continuing education classes cover a variety of topics, such as:
Math – chemical additions, hydraulics, pumping, digester, ponds, etc.
Technical topics pertaining to wastewater/water treatment
Laboratory – procedures, safety, quality control, etc.
ADEM approved safety classes
Some types of CEH classes are also available that both certified water and wastewater operators can attend for continuing education hours.
