Water 4 Highlights

Due to a host of requests for a fourth course in the series of water courses now offered in the Virginia Tech Short School for Operators, Water 4 was offered for the first time in 2017 at no cost. This year the Office of Drinking Water has provided sponsorship that allows us to offer this course at 50% cost to you:

Lodger - $564.00
Commuter - $349.00

The course will build on the principles of Water 1-3 and include materials pertaining to management, process controls, troubleshooting, new technologies, emerging contaminants, human resources, asset management, and much more.

Water 4 will be offered in the same format as the other three, week-long courses, beginning first thing Monday morning and ending at noon on Friday. The course is designed for lead operators, those who have completed Water 3 and/or waterworks personnel in supervisory roles.
