Earn your Water Industry’s Professional Operator certification and designation – Introducing limited-time incentives!

Water and Wastewater Operators,

Every 5 years, the Association of Boards of Certification (ABC) reviews industry practices and publishes new exam forms to ensure certification candidates are reliably tested on valid content. This process was recently completed, and new exams are on the way!

Just like any other new product, pilot testing of these new exams is an important final step to confirm they are functioning as designed. Certified goal oriented operators can participate in this process by applying for the new voluntary Professional Operator program – by validating your skills to international standards and earning this exciting credential, you can also positively contribute to the industry by running these exams through their paces.

Those who pilot test the new exams between May 1 and June 30 by applying for a Professional Operator certification and designation will have their entire application fee ($145 value) rebated back to them after they complete their exam. Additionally, they will be entered to win:

  • One of six PO Merchandise Packages enabling new POs to proudly display their new designation through a variety of PO-branded gear, and
  • One of two POWER Event Prize Packages – an opportunity to participate in an industry POWER event celebrating Professional Operators at either WEFTEC 2017 or ACE18. Each package includes a full conference registration as well as a $1,000 USD travel stipend to be issued at the event.

This is your chance to earn the industry’s only internationally-recognized operator professional designation at a minimal cost, with great prize packages, and knowing you are giving back to your profession. There’s been no greater time than now!
