Utility Management Certification

The Utility Management Certification is an opportunity to become certified as a Utility Manager in the Water/Wastewater industry. This certification is similar to the water or wastewater operator certification, but for managers. It is a way to recognize and advance the professional achievements of individuals in the water and wastewater industry. This certification will increase the value of today's utility manager.

Whether you are currently a manager or in an entry-level position, an operator certification alone is not enough for tomorrow's manager. A Utility Management Certification will certify you as a qualified manager in the fields of Public Relations, Financial Planning, Ethics, Human Resources and others skills not covered in today's traditional operator certification programs.

We invite you to achieve the recognition for your future and the future of your water and wastewater industry by taking part in this unique opportunity. Attend this two-day online certification review class to learn all you need to know to get your certification in the UMC program. The exam will be available online, directly following the review class.
