Confederation, WCWC partner to bring course to pilot water treatment plant

Confederation College and the Walkerton Clean Water Centre (WCWC) have partnered to bring WCWC’s “Operation of Conventional Treatment Processes” course to Confederation’s pilot water treatment plant. Students in the Environmental Technician program will be able to complete this training, which provides hands-on learning and practical application in environmental chemistry and pilot lab operations. The collaboration will make the course more accessible for students in Northern Ontario and will help prepare students to work in a diverse environmental field. “The collaboration with Walkerton Clean Water Centre will help to attract and train new operators for water treatment here at the College,” said Confederation Program Coordinator Sandra Stiles.
