On the heels of a very well attended and successful conference in Sun Valley I have to ask the question. Got CEUs (or PDHs)?

 

Whether licensed in Utah or Idaho, all of our Professional members require continuing education. I use the term professional to identify members of the drinking water industry that require licensure to complete their daily work within our drinking water systems. These include operators, laboratory technicians, engineers, surveyors, and many others. The required CEUs within the drinking water industry are designed to keep the water industry trained to a level that reflects our responsibility to public health and safety. On-going training is important to keep us aware of the trends, techniques, and technologies that are new to the water industry. Without training seminars and classes, of which many were offered at this year’s conference, our water and wastewater personnel may not be able to keep up with current standards and practices that can help them avoid failing systems. Our water and sewer systems are unseen yet they are key to allowing our communities to thrive.

 

As a drinking water professional, I want to thank the managers, councils, and boards that understand the important role conference attendance plays in the day to day management and operation of our drinking water systems. Your support of the licensed professionals that manage your water and sewer systems is crucial to the quality of life found in our communities.

 

Everyone that works hard to deliver safe drinking water and return the water to our streams and rivers cleaner than they found it, thank you.
