Client Operators are required to take “Director Approved” continuing education to meet the requirements for renewing drinking water certificates. ACUTE is a certified provider that delivers Director Approved courses in the area of drinking water operations.
Below is an excerpt of content from OWWCO regarding certification:
“When the people of Ontario reach for a glass of tap water, they expect their water to be safe. Across the province, it takes knowledgeable, conscientious people to operate our regulated systems and help ensure that they deliver clean, potable water and that wastewater is discharged in an environmentally safe manner.”
Certifying Ontario’s operators through the Drinking Water and Wastewater Operator Certification Program helps to ensure:
- The protection of human health
- The protection of the aquatic environment
- The efficient operation of water/wastewater infrastructure
