The Springfield Water and Sewer Commission has partnered with Springfield Technical Community College and the Massachusetts Water Works Association to develop the state’s first online water treatment operator course.
The course, which starts on September 9, 2019, provides the training necessary for students to complete the state Board of Certification exam.
SWSC contributed funding to help launch the online course in order to provide broader access to the training statewide. There is high demand for new water treatment operators and other water professionals throughout the water industry, including at the Commission. Students enrolled at a community college in Massachusetts can take the online course for free, and the course is also open for a fee to anyone already in or completely new to the water industry.
