2022 Training Calendar

2022 Training Course Catalog for Tribal Water and Wastewater Operator Certification

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

Please note: due to public health and safety concerns, ITCA Tribal operator certification training events are currently provided in a high-quality, student-focused online learning format. ITCA is working on how to determine when in-person trainings would be able to resume. Each online course consists of sequential lessons that are provided in a series of live online class meeting sessions that are each 2-hours or 3-hours in duration. Some courses are offered more than once to provide operators with options. Instructors may vary from one course offering to another.

The terms “lesson”, “class”, and “course” are defined in the ITCA Standards for Contact Hour Credit from Virtual Training Events document.

*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 use 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.
