Southeast Michigan Water Operator Courses

 

The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy's (EGLE) Drinking Water Operator Program is offering in-person courses in Southeast Michigan. These courses will include questions and answer opportunities with the course instructors.

October 4-5, 2022 - Chemistry Part 1 and Part 2

The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) developed this Basic Chemistry course for beginners and established operators who would like more understanding of chemistry as it relates to water treatment.  This classroom-based chemistry will help establish the background knowledge required to progress to the next state of chemistry for drinking water operators.  

Part 1 - lesson topics include the history of chemistry, parts of an atom, the periodic table, bond types and forms, naming compounds, and balancing equations.

Part 2 - lesson topics include the balancing reactions, molar masses, rules of fractions and unit conversations, history of the mole, molar mass ratios, molar ratio conversation factors, and stoichiometric calculations. 

     Registration Fee:  $75 includes both sessions. 

     Registration/Cancellation Deadline:  September 20, 2022

     Continuing Education:  Course provides 0.8 CECs in the Technical category for Drinking Water and Wastewater Operators.

     Location:  Double Tree Detroit/Dearborn, 5801 Southfield Service Dr., Detroit, MI  48228

October 26, 2022 - Cross Connections

The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) developed this shortened version of cross connections, its laser focused on learning the bare essentials. The focus on being what is a cross connection, the main causes and concerns of cross connections, what are laws regarding cross connections, and the 5 main ways for protecting systems from back flow. We will look at a few real situations that were encountered in different facilities out in the field.

The Course is approved for 0.2 CECs in the technical category for drinking water and wastewater operators. To be eligible for CECs, you must attend the entire session,  and be a paid registrant.
