February is such a short month that we almost forgot about an important deadline approaching. March 1 — tomorrow! — is the deadline for submitting your application for the Water Treatment Operator exam that will be held on May 17. Remember, if you miss this deadline, your next opportunity is six months later. So get that application in! Here is the link to the California Department of Public Health, Drinking Water Treatment and Distribution Operators:
On this page, you need to go WAY down to the bottom and click on the “Treatment Exam Application” link. The application is only two pages, so you can fill it out quickly. Make sure to get that and the application fee in the mail and postmarked by March 1.
You are required to provide documentation of your water treatment related education to complete your application. However, the State will usually let you send this in later. If you have it all handy, by all means send it in. But don’t miss the March 1 deadline just because you don’t have complete education documentation available right now. Send in the completed application form and your cash by tomorrow!
Sorry to give you such short notice on this deadline, but we’ve been focused on the Water Distribution Operator exam preparation — and February is just too short!
