Region IV Short School - Week 1

Water Distribution System Operator

The FW&PCOA originally provided these courses, starting in 1981, as a voluntary certification program. Today, these courses, taught by experienced operators, meet the core subject area requirements of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Operator Knowledge Base Manual, providing the training required by rule for the Florida operator examination for each level of licensing. The level 3 course is 30 hours in length. 


Reclaimed Water Distribution

The FW&PCOA’s voluntary certification program for reclaimed water system operators closely follows the subject content for water distribution system operator courses. Students receive additional instruction in Rule 62-610, Florida Administrative Code, regarding the reuse of reclaimed water and land application. The association grants certification step-wise, starting at the C level and progressing to the A level. Each course is 30 hours in length. 


Utilities Maintenance 

This voluntary certification course is designed for utility maintenance personnel, such as plant and pump station mechanics and electricians. Each course is 30 hours in length and includes the course manual published by the FW&PCOA.


Wastewater Collection System Operator

The FW&PCOA has been providing the voluntary certification of wastewater collection system operators since 1981. These courses are taught by experienced system operators and wastewater industry professionals in a live classroom setting. The association grants certification step-wise, starting at the C level and progressing to the A level. Each course is 30 hours in length.


Stormwater Management

The FW&PCOA has been providing the voluntary certification of stormwater operators since 1992. Originally developed by the state of Florida to train stormwater employees, these courses meet the training requirements for Florida’s municipal NPDES permit holders. Similar to the association’s other voluntary certification programs, these courses are taught by experienced system operators and industry professionals in a live classroom setting. The association grants certification step-wise, starting at the C level and progressing to the A level. Each course is 30 hours in length and the FW&PCOA provides the course manual.
