WEF/ABC/C2EP Collection Systems Operators’ Guide to Preparing for the Certification Examination was prepared jointly by the Water Environment Federation, the Association of Boards of Certification, and the Certification Commission for Environmental Professionals (C2EP). The third edition of this critical study guide has been updated to reflect new Need-to-Know Criteria and core competencies for collection system operators.
The questions included in this guide have been chosen to sample as many different aspects of a collection system operator’s job responsibilities as possible. Questions in the study guide are intended to provide an example of style and possible topics for certification exam questions.
Four levels of certification exams are offered by ABC, with class I being the lowest level and class IV the highest level. The following specifications for the exams are based on a weighting of the job analysis results so that they reflect the criticality of tasks performed on the job. The specifications list the percentage of questions on the exam that fall under each job duty. For example, 21% of the questions on the ABC class I collection exam relate to the job duty “Operate Equipment.”
