NWP adds Water and Wastewater Technician certificate

Northwestern Polytechnic is adding a Water and Wastewater Technician certificate to its programming through a partnership with Aquatera Utilities. NWP and Aquatera will collaboratively train Level 1 and 2 Water and Wastewater Technicians starting this Fall. Students in the 12-month program will learn about monitoring and operating water control systems and equipment, collecting wastewater, freshwater distribution, and also take part in a 600-hour industry practicum. Courses will be offered in three-week blocks to facilitate industry participation. “This is a tremendous learning and partnership opportunity as our students will have the benefit of hands-on training in a world-class facility that services municipalities across Alberta,” said NWP School of Applied Science and Technology Dean Dr Brian Redmond.
