“On-Site” Fee-Based Continuing Education Training

on-site training

Due to the overwhelming request for "On-site" training, the ARWA has established a training program providing "in-house" or "on-site" continuing education courses for water and wastewater employees to help lower the cost of travel and time away from the system.

Whether your employees need a few hours or several days of continuing education training, the ARWA can tailor a training program to meet your system needs.

  • Pick from a variety of structured courses (below) or ask ARWA to customize a course.
  • You may set up custom training for your employees only or include employees from neighboring systems to share the expense.

Call today to schedule "On-Site" Continuing Education Hour Training for your system or to
request more information regarding this new training program.
