Dedicated to continuous learning in the water and wastewater industry.
It doesn’t take long in this industry to figure out that it’s more complicated than people think, and to be a successful operator, you need to know a lot about a lot of things – like chemistry, math, IT/computers, plumbing systems, biology and mechanics. And, on top of the working knowledge of these things, states require that operators be certified in this knowledge as well.
This is where PeopleService University comes in. All eligible employees participate in Spring and Fall classes that help deepen the knowledge qualified operators need to have.
In fact, when someone has been with us for six months, he can enter the Level 1 exam course. With successful completion, this education can replace part of the experience requirement for that certification.
PeopleService covers all costs of taking time off the job, travel to and from the training, lodging, books and the trainer. Our employee/students pass Level 1 and 2 exams at a significantly higher rate than those who have to study for, get to and take the exam with far less preparation and support.
And, unlike some communities and water/wastewater operations companies, we don’t give up on our employees if they have trouble passing a certification exam. We continue to work with them, pay for the classes and support them every step of the way.
This assures that the people who manage, operate and maintain your water/wastewater system are skilled and trained in how to assure the safest, cleanest product for your community.
