WATER/WASTEWATER CEU COURSES

The CEU classes are the existing college credit courses broken down into individual chapters making them easier to use by the operators. These classes still contain the high quality content, audio, audio text, self-tests, quizzes, and a final exam found in the college classes. Also, the operator will still need to read the textbook when taking these courses.

One CEU is the equivalent to 10 contact hours of study.
