Four Graduate from Water Treatment Operator Program
SANDUSKY — Four students of the Water Treatment Operator Program graduated Tuesday, May 5, in Sandusky.
Graduating were Gary Boos, John Runyon, Daniel Ward and Robert Weaver.
The Water Treatment Operator Program is offered by WSOS in partnership with the Operator Training Committee of Ohio (OTCO). During the 16-week course, local water superintendents teach students about drinking water distribution systems, wastewater collection systems, water and wastewater laboratory analysis and more.
The course prepares students for the State of Ohio EPA water operator exam and offers job placement assistance.
Ward has already passed the state EPA exam and is now seeking employment. Boos, Runyon and Weaver will test within the month and are also seeking employment.
“Many current water operators will soon reach retirement age,” said WSOS Employment and Training Coordinator Roger Fisher. “This means that the Water Treatment Operator Program offers an opportunity for motivated students to train for a profession that needs skilled workers, pays well, and provides a vital service to communities everywhere.”
Each year, the Water Treatment Operator Program offers classes January through April.
