Drinking Water Services (DWS) now offers an advanced course that is appropriate for operators who have completed the basics course
two or more times. Like the basics course, the advanced course is a free one-day course that meets the training requirement for recertification. However, this course covers new topics and operators use information from their own water systems to complete hands-on activities in class. For this reason, the advanced class is not offered as an online class. More information about the course can be found in the April 2012 Pipeline (pdf)
Advanced courses run from 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM (PST). Class dates and locations are listed in the table below:
