The BC Water & Waste Association maintains an extensive roster of courses to ensure operators have access to continuing education and career development opportunities.

 

We currently offer 10 certification preparation courses that help operators get ready to take an Environmental Operators Certification Program (EOCP) certification exam and/or earn continuing education units (CEUs) to maintain an existing EOCP operator certification. We also offer 19 elective courses that provide skills training and an opportunity to earn CEUs to maintain their existing certification(s).

COURSES ARE DELIVERED IN THREE FORMATS

 

  • In-class for individual operators, at an operator school or on-demand in a community.
  • Online for individual operators, in their home or workplace and at their own pace.
  • Through custom training for a municipality or private company, at their worksite.

 

CEUs earned by completing a BCWWA course may be applied as "core" or "related" to an operator's certification. The EOCP requires that at least 25% of the CEUs applied to a certification are "core" to that certification type. The charts below indicate how many CEUs each course offers and whether it can be applied as "core" or "related" to each certification type. Find out more about the EOCP's CEU requirements.
