School Overview

These schools serve as a REVIEW for the examinations given by the NC Water Pollution Control System Operators Certification Commission (NCWPCSOCC). They also represent the minimum required training by the NCWPCSOCC. Since all of the relevant material cannot be covered during the school, it is expected that participants will have studied extensively before the schools.

Successful completion of these schools constitutes attendance at a minimum of 80% of the school’s total class hours. Participants who successfully complete the school will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the school. This certificate will document attendance for use in demonstrating contact hours for professional growth requirements for certified Wastewater Operators and PDH’s for Professional Engineers. Each participant must pick up his or her own certificate at the conclusion of the event. NO certificates will be given out early nor given to another individual. Certificates will be mailed to persons who successfully complete the school, but are not present at the end to pick up.
