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.
