Help Wanted!

PA-AWWA is looking for Volunteers to instruct DEP Modules and Operator Certification Exam Review Courses.

The PA-AWWA Operator Training Zone is a very important part of our Operator Continuing Education program and will be available on a quarterly basis so operators have a convenient opportunity to earn contact hours.  In order to continue this viable program, we need to provide Pennsylvania’s drinking water operators with high quality courses that provide PA DEP contact hours. This can only be done if we strengthen our volunteer and instructor base. We need your help! The Section will provide course content and administer the workshop. Our greatest need is for individuals to present the course content to the operators. The instructors will also receive PA DEP contact hours for their efforts.

If anyone is interested in volunteering to instruct for the Section, please contact Nancy Dinger at the Section office at 717-774-8870, send an e-mail to [email protected] or click on the "Operator Training Interest" link above!
