The Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) Corporate Training Center is offering new Drinking Water Treatment Plant Operations and Wastewater Treatment Plant Operations study tracks.
These training certification classes prepare students for the state of Florida’s drinking water and wastewater licensing exams. Courses require a high school diploma or GED, but are of interest to a broad range of people from recent high school graduates to degreed people working in related fields who are stacking credentials atop their degrees for advancement or those in unrelated fields seeking a career change.
The basic certifications in each area are attainable by coursework and a state exam. The first courses in each track include 108 clock hours of instruction, which prepare students to take state exams resulting in level C certification for entry level employment in municipal water treatment facilities and municipal wastewater treatment enterprises.
Following completion of the C level certification, B level certification courses will follow for students interested in water treatment and wastewater treatment plant operations certifications.
FSW’s Corporate Training Center is the only entity in Southwest Florida currently offering these classes. Classes begin January 2020 and meet twice a week for 18 weeks. Instructors are approved by the state of Florida. The cost is $700.
