A-B Tech Approved to Provide Wastewater Treatment Certification
A-B Tech Community College has been approved by the Water Pollution Control Systems Operator Certification Commission to provide Grade I and Grade II Biological Wastewater Operator training courses, which will start March 16.
Water pollution control facilities collect and treat contaminated water to prevent large-scale pollution from destroying our river, streams, lakes, and oceans. North Carolina is home to more than1,000 facilities that collect and clean water for discharge or re-use. Each of these facilities is required to have a Certified Water Pollution Control Systems Operator on staff.
“There are numerous employment opportunities in this challenging and rewarding field. This training is for individuals interested in gaining entry into the wastewater profession,” said Sara Gresko, Occupational and Skilled Trades Coordinator.
Classes will run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Fridays from March 16 to May 11 on the Asheville campus. At the end of the course, students will receive a certificate of completion for both Grade I and Grade II Biological Waste Water Operator training course. Completers may then apply to sit for the June 14 Operator Certification Exam.
