PRIDE Offers Free Trainings for Water/Wastewater Operators

PRIDE is pleased to partner with the Kentucky Rural Water Association to present free training workshops for elected officials, drinking water professionals and wastewater professionals, thanks to a grant from USDA Rural Development. The workshops target the 42 counties served by PRIDE.

The objective is to help attendees better perform their roles and enhance the operations at their facilities.

The two-day workshops are free, but participants must register in advance. PRIDE will provide lunch to participants both days. Continuing education hours will be awarded. Some sample topics include Source Water Protection in Kentucky, Sampling Procedures and Water and Wastewater Analysis.

“We are pleased to be able to offer these workshops to water professionals again in 2017,” said PRIDE’s Tammie Wilson. “We’ve had a great response to the classes in the past. The information presented is important and very helpful to those in water and wastewater fields.”

Below are the dates and locations for this year’s training. Training starts each day at 8:30 a.m. and will end at 3:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided.
