The Rocky Mountain Water and Wastewater Fundamentals School is a basic, comprehensive overview for water and wastewater operators. The course is divided into two separate classes, one on water and one on wastewater. The course is designed for people who are new to the field or have been in it for only a few years. It should be beneficial to those seeking Class "C", "D", "T", and "S" certification.

The goal of the Fundamentals school is to provide education for operators, so they possess a better understanding of the water and wastewater fields. The courses are designed to furnish operators with basic concepts of how treatment processes work and the requirements of government regulations. The Fundamentals school curriculum also provides opportunities to prepare for either the water or wastewater certification exams. However, operators should not use the courses as their only study guide for certification exams. 

** By taking this course, you will meet the APPROVED REGULATORY REQUIREMENT for Colorado **

"A" and "B" operators are encouraged to participate in the Intermediate and Advanced School in April, which offers courses geared for experienced treatment plant operators.
