Educational Studies in Water
Technology


Working in the water technology involves monitoring quality of water resources and
maintaining local, state and federal requirements for safety purposes.

Our program has found some educational water operator training at some colleges and
universities. These classroom training or online sessions are available to operators who
are willing to further educate themselves to enhance water resources, protecting public
health, and coordinating job readiness. A successful career in this profession requires
technician and/or operators to have:

  • A high level of math and science proficiency
  • Thorough knowledge of water quality standards
  • Knowledge of plant operations and maintenance procedures

Below are a list of college/universities and government offices that accredit towards higher
learning to a degree program and/or completion of a certificate in that particular field.
