VSS, D1, & T1 Certification Exam Preparatory Course: A 3-Day Course (#2021-17)

Approximately 90% of New England's drinking water systems - about 10,000 systems - are small and most use ground water sources. Small systems provide drinking water to less than 3,300 people while very small systems provide it to less than 500 people. The purpose of our VSS class is to familiarize students with the small water system field and teach the responsibilities of certified drinking water operators. This class covers the following topics: water quality sampling, wells and their source protection, water pipes, storage tanks, hydrants, valves, meters, water treatment, how to create reports, and Massachusetts drinking water regulations. We will show you how to use basic math formulas to calculating water storage, pressure, flow, and water usage. This class will get you prepared to pass the D1, T1 test. You will also earn 18 TCH credits.

This is a three-part class and students must attend all classes to get credit. Classes will be on Thursdays, July 15, 22, and 29, 2021. Each class will be held Virtually on the Zoom platform.
