Wastewater Technology Certificate of Completion
The noncredit Wastewater Technology Certificate is designed to prepare students with the necessary knowledge and skills to obtain entry-level employment in wastewater collections, treatment, and recycle operations. Note: The Wastewater Technology Certificate is not equivalent to the “Certificate of Competency” issued by the California Water Environment Association (CWEA) in wastewater collection system operations or the “Certificate of Competency” issued by the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) in Wastewater Treatment. The Cooperative Work Experience course, WST 098, is highly recommended for students not currently employed in the field.
