Class Types

In Person: We are now able to offer some classes in-person at certain locations.

Zoom: We are still holding most classes online using Zoom. Registrants will receive the Zoom link by email the day before class. Attendees will receive a certificate of TCHs by email after class. Click here for more information about webinar trainings.

Hybrid: These classes will be offered simultaneously in-person and over Zoom. When you register, please indicate which way you plan to attend. If you need to change, email info@vtruralwater.org.

Sick Policy: We ask that if you have symptoms of a contagious illness (Covid, flu, or other) you please do not attend classes in-person. If you are ill on the day of class, we will work with you to find a remote attendance option or switch to another class on a different day. We want water and wastewater systems to be able to stay fully staffed and this should help all of us stay as healthy as possible.

License & Certification Renewal Reminder

Water Operators: Class 2 and 4 certifications must be renewed by June 30, 2023. Class 2 operators need 10 hours of continuing education and Class 4 operators need 20 hours. Find more information on DEC’s website.

Wastewater Operators: licenses must be renewed by July 31, 2023. You need 4–16 hours of continuing education (depending on your license level) in order to renew. See details on page 5–6 of this document.

Note on Credits: DEC and OPR are accepting live Zoom classes for full credit towards license/certification renewal. Please be aware that non-live online trainings (such as Suncoast classes) can only comprise 50% of your renewal credits.
