Event Details

0.6 Wastewater CEUs Available
In-depth preparation for the wastewater exam
This course will occur every month and is supposed to be in supplement to the RWAU Operator Certification Course that happens four times a year. These in-depth training are meant to cover topics in detail that will help operators prepare for the operator certification exam or Lagoons, Treatment, and Collections. The purpose of these classes is to help operators to study for certification exams, but they DO NOT supplement the need for personal study of the wastewater textbooks to prepare for the exam. Personally studying from the textbooks is vital to one's preparation to get certified. If you are unsure which textbook you need for a certification exam, check the link below.
The objectives of this class are to:
  • Describe the purpose of primary clarification
  • Categorize influent parameters according to whether they can be removed by primary clarification
  • Label all components of circular and rectangular primary clarifiers and describe the function of each
  • Inspect and maintain clarifier equipment
  • Place a primary clarifier into service or remove one from service
  • Calculate hydraulic detention time (HDT) and surface overflow rate (SOR)
  • Determine the optimum number of clarifiers to place into service to maintain a desired SOR and HDT
  • Estimate the quantity of sludge produced given primary influent and effluent total suspended solids (TSS) concentrations
  • Calculate sludge pumping time required for a given sludge thickness and volume
  • Collect process control samples, conduct settleable solids analysis, and evaluate results
  • Anticipate seasonal changes and make appropriate process control changes
  • Troubleshoot common mechanical and process control problems
