Where did 2021 go? Don’t let the end of the year catch you short of hours that you need to renew your license. We have you covered. There is a great line-up of classes available through our virtual mini-conference. Get your hours, learn some new things, and hang out virtually with your peers. Let’s close out this year with some great training. See you in the Zoom room. Each class will be entered separately, so you will need to chat your license choice for each class. Kathy

November Training Tuesdays

There are 5 Tuesdays in November, and we are going to do training on every one of them!  We are going to have live classes via Zoom.  The classes and instructors are stellar.  Spend some time with your peers this November and pick up any hours you might need. All classes will be presented from 1pm-3pm.

November 23rd - Sanitary Surveys. If you haven’t noticed, Sanitary Surveys have changed, and they continue to evolve.  Many of you know Rick Nansen.  He is a truly great water operator.  He also has been doing Sanitary Surveys this year.  Find out what he has learned and what those doing surveys are being instructed to look at while they are assessing your system.  This class could very well keep you from getting into the significant deficiency trap.  It will be well worth your while.  W/D licenses, Core and Rules

November 30th - Asset Management and Rate Setting.  Too often we view these as separate activities.  They aren’t.  One drives the other, or it should.  Carl Brown of GettingGreatRates fame and expert Arnab Bhowmick of Aktivov Asset Management have teamed up.  Grab your clerk, your mayor, and every other decision-maker you can get your hands on and get them registered.  This class will help operators explain to those in charge the resources they need to operate a compliant and well- run system.  All licenses
