The ITCA National Tribal Water & Wastewater Operator Certification Program is pleased to provide this updated listing of free operator training and certification events.

*Specified Regional or Area Designations
Most of the online training courses are listed without any specified region or area and are therefore, open without restriction. However, some training courses are listed for certain regions or areas. Such training courses are made possible by funding agencies for the express purpose of serving certain geographic areas. When a course is listed for a specific region or area, two different registration options are available—Priority Registration, and General Admission Waiting List.

    • Priority Registration

If you work on Tribal lands in the region or area specified for that course, please us the “priority registration” option. Priority registration will be monitored and tracked based on the work address provided during registration.

      • General Admission Waiting List

Online training course size is limited to preserve the high quality of student-focused instruction. A general admission waiting list is available for personnel working on Tribal lands that are outside of the region or area specified for the particular course. Selection for the course will be first come, first served based on seats available after the priority registration seats are filled.
