Online Classes during COVID-19
Vermont Rural Water will not be holding in-person classes until the State of Emergency has ended and Vermont allows gatherings of 20 people. Instead, we are holding trainings online using Zoom. DWGPD and OPR have apporved our online trainings for TCHs.
You can take training courses online through SunCoast Learning Systems. These courses are approved for water and wastewater training contact hours (TCHs) by the Vermont DEC Drinking Water & Groundwater Protection Program and the Wastewater Management Program.

Note that a maximum of 50 percent of TCHs for a water or wastewater operator’s continuing education training can come from online training in a given certification period. Questions about certification, licensing, and TCHS should be directed to the VT DEC DWGPD (drinking water) and the Office of Professional Regulation (wastewater).
Fluoridation Learning Online (FLO) is available for water operators. The FLO course consists of 4 modules; each module is approved for 1 TCH, for a total of 4 TCHs. This training is free as is offered by the CDC. Find more information and start the training at www.cdc.gov/fluoridation/engineering/training.htm
