Continuing Education Credits: 0.5 Water and Wastewater, Other


$250 Members per attendee

$305 Non-Members per attendee

Most water and wastewater utilities have to work with heavy equipment, backhoes, front loaders and heavy trucks. This class will provide training for the proper operation of heavy equipment. This training is focused on the proper operation and accident prevention topics. With this type of training, we can help prevent accidents, employee downtime and equipment repair which can help minimize cost to the community.
