Bookstore

Below is a list of books and manuals that correspond with the certification schools we offer. As of January 1, 2013, NC AWWA-WEA is no longer fulfilling book orders by shipment. School attendees may use the Advanced Purchase Bookstore form, also found in the Training Catalogs,  to order their books in advance and pick them up at the school. Depending on inventory, there may be a limited number of books available for purchase at the school.

School attendees, please note that the appropriate Needs To Know Manual for each course is included in the registration fee and manuals will be distributed at school. Needs To Know Manuals are also available below to download for free.

Listed below with each book is a vendor that has offered the material in the past.  You may be able to find the materials from other sources such as Amazon or college bookstores, but this list provides you a starting point for ordering.  For your convenience, you may also download a spreadsheet of books and potential vendors (current as of 1/2/13).
