Water Treatment Operator Exam in Six Weeks!

This week was Spring Break at College of the Canyons, where we have plied our trade as an instructor in Water Technology since 1989.  We were pretty certain that this break would allow us to get a couple more blog posts out.  But no, another week has gone by.

Are you in a similar situation as you prepare for the Water Treatment Operator exam?  It’s now just six weeks away, so you can’t afford to miss opportunities to study.  But don’t try to learn everything at once.  Eat the elephant one bite at a time, as they say.  Spend a little time each weekend slowly getting reacquainted with the subject matter.

If we miss a week, it only means less e-mail that you need to sort through; if you miss a week, it may mean that you’re not ready on May 18.  So don’t forget to study.  And don’t forget to ask MOST for help as you prepare.

      You’re welcome, Gabe! The Water Math DVD is great for water efficiency, but it’s even better for Water Distribution and Water Treatment. And in California, the best book reference remains the “Ken Kerri” book, Water Treatment Plant Operation, from Cal State Sacramento. For the T3, you should be reviewing both Volumes I and II. I hope to complete our series of Water Treatment courses at MOST over the next couple of months, so you have more to study from online. Right now, WQ-4 and WQ-5, and WT-1 — plus the Water Math courses, are the MOST important ones that we have available for the T3.
      Good luck!
