IMPORTANT: Postponement of Switching to the New ABC 2017 Exams

ITCA has postponed its use of NEW Certification Exams in 2017

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc (ITCA) National Tribal Water & Wastewater Operator Certification Program must postpone its switch to using the Association of Boards of Certification (ABC) new 2017 operator certification exams. 

Until further notice, the ITCA Program will continue using the existing ABC 2012 Standardized operator certification exams for both Paper-Booklet Testing and Computer-Based Testing.
