TRAINING ANNOUNCEMENT

Principles & Practices of Wastewater Treatment (Grades I & II)

Anyone preparing for a state WWTP operator certification exam will benefit from this structured overview of the wastewater field. The 40 hour course is based
on the well-known CSU Sacramento home-study course manuals for WWTP operations. While this course is intended for those seeking Grade 1 licensure, it
is also open to those looking to take the II exam.

The instructor will cover a wide range of topics including wastewater laws and regulations, preliminary treatment,
sedimentation and flotation, secondary treatment processes, activated sludge, trickling filters, rotating biological contactors, waste treatment ponds, and disinfection.

Note: Passing this course can be equivalent to passing the Grade 1 exam given Rhode Island Board of Certification of Operators of Wastewater Treatment Facilities. While this course can also assist in the preparation of other exams offered by the Board, a passing grade in this course can only be applied toward a Grade 1 application. Because the Board only offers licensure to approved applicants, passing this course is not necessarily a guarantee of securing the Rhode Island Grade 1 license.

WEF Training (webcast)

“Corrosion: Causes and Controls”

Date: 2/10/16 from 1-3pm
Details: Corrosion plagues every wastewater plant facility, equipment, lift station, and pipeline. While corrosion is basically unavoidable, the long term costs and headaches associated with it can be controlled and minimized. This webcast will provide information on the sources or corrosion and mechanisms by which it starts and spreads. Chemical effective at reducing odors compounds (particularly hydrogen sulfide) in the atmosphere at plants will be discussed. The advantages and disadvantages of each will be presented. More aggressive corrosion control through coatings, linings, and timely maintenance or rehabilitation will be the final presentation. Click here for more information.
