Webinar: Status of California’s Advanced Water Treatment (AWT) Operator Certification ProgramAs potable reuse grows in popularity, the challenge for state regulators and municipalities implementing PR is to determine the best way to verify that the operators assigned to operate a PR plant have an adequate level of experience and training to operate these complex and critically important systems, while also ensuring that the program integrates with existing certifications. The CA-NV Section AWWA and the California Water Environment Association have developed an Advanced Water Treatment Operator (AWTO) Certification Program open to AWTOs across the county to address the absence of significant testing on advanced water treatment topics in the existing Operator Certification Program for water and wastewater operators. This presentation will give an overview of the program development, the exams being offered, and training and preparation needs.
