Since 1974, Kirkwood Community College has offered a statewide water and wastewater workshop program for operator upgrades and re-certification. Currently, this program delivers a number of short, subject-specific workshops designed to upgrade the skills of existing operators and basic training classes in water and wastewater treatment for entry-level operators. Each workshop lasts from one to four days and covers specific subjects such as pump maintenance, chlorination chemistry and worker safety regulations. In addition, Kirkwood had been involved in the Water Environmental Credit Program since the mid 1970's. This 2 year AAS Degree is an innovative program that provides students with real-world experience with either a one -or- two year program for preparation in the water and wastewater fields. The two-year degree includes technical study in water/wastewater procedures, complemented by math, science, social science and humanities classes, as well as an internship.
