Event date: 11/10/2020 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Export event

This is a review course for operators preparing to take a Level I or II Wastewater Collections exam. This class is based off the ABC material that the Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licensing uses to create its licensing exams. You will receive handouts showing specific topics to study and go through example test questions for each topic. A breakdown of exam topics will be given.

Topics include:

  • Equipment operation, evaluation, and maintenance

  • Lift station operation and maintenance

  • Collection system monitoring, evaluation, and adjustment

  • Wastewater operator safety, security, and administrative procedures

  • Test taking tips and procedures

Certification Math Review should be taken in conjunction with this course; this class does not include calculations.

Operation and Maintenance of Wastewater Collection Systems, Vol I.

Sacramento State training manuals are a sought-after resource for operators preparing for state certification. This training manual was developed to serve the needs of operators in a variety of ways, including: as a self-paced, independent-study distance learning course, and as a textbook in traditional college and university classes (often taught by experienced operators). The goal is to provide you with an understanding of basic operational and maintenance concepts for wastewater collection systems and with an understanding of basic collection systems and with the ability to analyze and solve problems when they occur.

(Textbook is not required but is recommended).
