RCAC: Do the Math 4-Part Series: Operator Math 301: Advanced Math Problems
September 22, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Description: 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 the first three sessions is based on the expected-range-of-knowledge for the California distribution D1/D2 exams. Operator Math 301 is targeted to the grade 3/4 level 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.
Who should attend: operators and managers.
Participants will learn:
- Pressure and Head problems (multi conversion problems)
- Chemical dosage problems (HTH and hypochlorite)
- Pumping problems (horsepower)
- Odds and Ends (supply, solution, SCADA, specific gravity)
Accreditation: 2 California Drinking Water Contact Hours awarded. Contact hours have been approved for the Registered Environmental Health Specialist Program
