Wastewater Licensure and Credentials for NJ: Tiered credentials, qualifications for being a course provider. 

OCTE Anne Freeman's insight:

Tiered Licensure:

VSWS (Very Small Wastewater System:

What are the minimum criteria needed to take a VSWS exam?

1) Possession of a high school diploma or equivalency certificate.

2) Completion of the 12-hour VSWS training course

3) Six months of documented operating experience at a public community or public nontransient noncommunity water system.

 

Becoming and continuing to be a Licensed Operator in New Jersey requires training, passing an exam, and completion of continuing education.  This is managed through the Board of Examiners and the Advisory Committee on Water Supply and Wastewater Licensed Operator Training.

 

A licensed operator is an individual holding any local title, designation, or job description who is on-site at a public water system a significant amount of time, although not necessarily full-time, and who has active involvement in and is responsible for the operation, maintenance, and effectiveness of the system. The licensed operator must hold a license issued by the Department that is equal or superior to the license required for the system.
