New Training Center Launched by CA-NV American Water Works Association

A new educational center to help train water professionals will be opening in West Sacramento, as part of the California-Nevada Section of the American Water Works Association (CA-NV AWWA).

The CA-NV AWWA will be opening its new educational center in West Sacramento, located directly off the I-80 freeway. The new facility will provide drinking water professionals additional opportunities for CA-NV AWWA education and training that had been less available in the region until now.

"This is another big step for the California-Nevada Section on our path to provide more of the highest quality water knowledge that is the hallmark of AWWA.  With this new center, we can schedule classes more often and on more topics than ever before," said Dr. Timothy Worley, executive director of CA-NV AWWA.

Classes began on Friday, June 21, 2013, with the Backflow Refresher Workshop that will utilize an indoor backflow laboratory.  The workshop was a memorable event bringing to fruition the vision of a West Sacramento center where all water industry professionals in the region can take advantage of the current, relevant, and innovative education and certification programs CA-NV AWWA offers.

CA-NV AWWA, has released a schedule of classes for the year.  Registration is open for the upcoming Backflow Refreshers, Backflow Courses, Water Distribution (D2-D5) Reviews, Water Treatment (T1-T4) Reviews and Water Quality & Regulations Workshops.

A public ribbon cutting ceremony and an open house for the West Sacramento Training Center is planned for July 18, 2013 at 4:00pm.
