At a minimum, every public water system regardless of size and complexity requires a certified water distribution operator. In addition, those systems using treatment also must have an operator that holds a water treatment operator certification. The most significant hurdle for many grade 1 and grade 2 operators in passing the operator certification exam, however, is the math portion of the test. Typically, the math section of the certification exam constitutes about 35% of the total exam score so proficiency in math is necessary to pass the test.
The math included in each session is based on the expected-range-of-knowledge for the California distribution D1/D2 exams.
The target learner for this training wants (and needs) one specific thing: the ability to accurately calculate operator certification exam math questions. Accordingly, the
learning event design focuses solely on this need. This training is not designed for “contact hours “or participant “entertainment”. This is a hands-on training with an
expectation of continuous participation — working and answering math problems – throughout the entire session.
In Part 2, participants will learn how to calculate:
• Area of a circle
• Area of a rectangle
• Volume of a cylinder
• Volume of a rectangular tank
Operator Basics Series: The recommended audience includes operators and managers.
