We have been dealing with some significant issues at the MOST web site over the past several weeks, and that resulted in the “Maintenance” period that has kept us offline. We apologize for the inconvenience, as we know many of you were looking for the MOST convenient and MOST economical way to get the continuing education/contact hours that you need to renew your Water Treatment and Water Distribution certifications. But we’re back now, and hopefully better than ever.
But no sooner are we back online than we need to leave! After a brief out-of-town trip this weekend, we have a very busy week to close out August. We will be conducting 8-hour exam review courses for the California-Nevada Section of the American Water Works Association on Tuesday and Wednesday next week in their new offices in Rancho Cucamonga. If you wish to join us, see:
Also next week, we begin the Fall Semester at College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita. We will be teaching Water Treatment and Water Mathematics, plus COC will also be offering two fully online courses for those of you that can’t make the commute to Santa Clarita. See the full COC Water Technology schedule and enrollment information at:
Finally, we’re beginning our first semester at Mount Saint Mary’s College as an adjunct professor of Physical Science. This is not a training opportunity for you Water Industry folks, but it demonstrates our MOST teaching philosophy well: we provide you with the science behind water treatment and distribution — not just the answers to common certification exam questions, like you’ll find at other online sites.
One last thing: a reminder for those of you looking to take the next Water Treatment Operator certification exam here in California. The exam will be held on November 16, but the application deadline is September 1! Get your application here:
If you look at your calendar, you’ll see that September 1 is a Sunday, and September 2 is Labor Day. Generally, the California Department of Public Health will accept applications that are postmarked the first business day following the deadline date — which would be Tuesday, September 3. However, that is not what the DPH web site states, so you should be looking to get your application to the post office by next Friday, August 30. Don’t delay!
And we won’t be back to remind you about this until that date, so this is your final warning from MOST!
