The 30 Hr. Basic Wastewater Treatment Class is for entry-level and current grade I or II operators. This class, along with 6 months experience will satisfy the eligibility requirement for the Iowa DNR Wastewater Treatment Grade I and is a good review for anyone planning to take the Wastewater Treatment Grade II exam.

The course objective is to provide operators and managers with the knowledge, skill, abilities, and judgment essential to safely operate and maintain their facilities as well as manage their facilities using appropriate financial strategies.

It provides a solid foundation and builds on knowledge about wastewater sources and characteristics, math, hydraulics, lift stations, flow measurement, preliminary treatment, primary treatment, secondary treatment, disinfection, digestion, solids handling and disposal, sampling and lab, safety, administration, laws and regulations.  Iowa and Nebraska approved for three CEUs for Wastewater.

He continually is updating the 30 Hr. curriculum based on student results and industry changes. He is an excellent resource for our operators and an outstanding leader in our industry.
