State Board for Certification of Water and Wastewater Systems Operators; 2005 Examinations Postponement Announcement
[35 Pa.B. 1477]
The State Board for Certification of Water and Wastewater Systems Operators (Board) and the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) have postponed the scheduled State-sponsored examinations for both water and wastewater operator certification for 2005.
The overwhelming demand for examination services requires the Board and the Deparment to restructure the delivery of these examinations. In addition, the Board and the Department are currently streamlining the examination registration process. The new process will be finalized very soon.
At this time, the Board and the Department are working with industry associations to make examination services available Statewide in the spring and summer of 2005. These examination announcements will be made when new dates have been finalized. State sponsored examinations will be rescheduled later in the year based upon demand. To date, associations that have been contacted include:
American Water Works Association--Pa. Section
Eastern Pennsylvania Water Pollution Control Operators Association
Western Pennsylvania Water Pollution Control Operators Association
Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors
Pennsylvania Manufactured Housing Association
Pennsylvania Municipal Authorities Association
Pennsylvania Water Environment Association
Small Systems Technical Assistance Center--Penn State Harrisburg
Water Works Operators Association of Pennsylvania
In addition, the Pennsylvania Rural Water Association (PRWA) is planning on conducting an examination session on March 29, 2005, as part of their annual conference. Registration deadline is March 1, 2005. Contact the PRWA for further information.
