Educational Studies in Water
Technology
**NEW** 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. Check out the links!!
