Since Wastewater Operator Certification Exams require knowledge across a very complex and wide area, general exam prep classes are fast paced and do not allow for in depth discussions and explanations; instead, they focus on review and practice questions. For those who are struggling with wastewater math we would strongly encourage you to also take our “Math Review & Exam Prep for OIT and Level I & II Operators” workshop.
Based on your background you may also want to consider taking additional classes that explain specific topics such as our “Taking the Mystery out of Pumps”, “Sample Collection & Sampling Plans”, “Biosolids Treatment” or Regulatory Compliance – State Waste & NPDES Discharge Permits workshops.
