The Water Treatment Plant Operators Short Courses are scheduled for August 2-7, 2015 and the Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators Short Courses are scheduled for August 9-14, 2015, at The Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center in Blacksburg, Virginia.
The Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center combines refined surroundings and state-of-the-art technology. The facility is located on 25 lush acres of the Virginia Tech campus and includes a world-class hotel with elegant guest rooms and suites.
Register by July 1 to take advantage of the early registration fee and to guarantee enrollment in any of the Courses and a guest room that Virginia Tech will reserve on your behalf. If more operators register in the program than the Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center can accommodate, alternative arrangements will be made for operators to stay at nearby hotels. Reservations at the hotels will be made on a first come, first served basis. After July 15, all participants must register at Commuter fee. At this time, the operator will be responsible for securing and paying for their own lodging room.
The Virginia Section of the American Water Works Association (VA AWWA) has 2 scholarships available for operators who might be interested in applying that can be used for training. This scholarship can be applied directly to a registration for the Water Treatment Plant Operator’s Short Courses for 2015. Don’t delay - applications are due May 25, 2015!
