Water Management Certificate

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degree & Certificate Programs

The Water Management Certificate covers the operation of water treatment plants from both ground and surface water sources as well as the water distribution systems that deliver treated water to residential, commercial, industrial and government customers. Connecticut continually needs qualified individuals in the water treatment and distribution areas to fill positions in the increasing number of facilities.

Certification by the CT Department of Public Health Drinking Water Section is required to operate water treatment and distribution facilities. Gateway’s Water Management Certificate program offers a sequence of courses to prepare students for the Connecticut Department of Health certification examinations. Successful completion of the program provides the necessary education requirements to take the CT Department of Public Health’s highest class water industry license examinations (Class IV Water Treatment and Class III Distribution). If successful, graduates are licensed as Operators-in-Training; OIT licenses become full licenses after work experience requirements are met. CT DPH licenses are recognized by most other states.

Suggested Course Sequence
