The third edition of this critical study guide has been updated to reflect new Need-to-Know Criteria and core competencies for wastewater operators.
The questions included in this guide have been chosen to sample as many different aspects of a wastewater 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.
