The Wastewater Operators "C" License Certification program offered by our Institute is the first step to starting a career in wastewater treatment!  This course will prepare you for employment as a wastewater treatment plant operator, or provide supplemental training for persons currently employed in this field.  It will also prepare students for the "C" License exam offered through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. This course includes lecture, group discussions, wastewater treatment plant visits, lab work, problem solving, and demonstrations.  Completing this course meets the requirement of the State of Florida for 155 hours of classroom instruction.

The non-credit course is offered at the HCC Plant City Campus.  Classes will meet in the PSCI 114 classroom.

The next course will begin Wednesday, March 19, and run through July 2nd.
