Get a Career in WATER! Become Part of the OPERATOR IN TRAINING PROGRAM!

 

The Illinois Section AWWA, along with the North Chicago Community High School, City of North Chicago and Darrell A King are partnering to offer an opportunity to high school students for a career in the water industry.  The recommended course that qualifies for the scholarship program offered by the Illinois Section AWWA and fill the requirement for basic knowledge is:

#3003 Water Distribution Systems Online Course
This course will assist the student in preparing for the IEPA Class D Operator exam. Successful completion of the #3003 Course will earn the student 3 months credit towards the 6 month hands-on experience requirement.

Receive a rebate upon completion of the course

In order for the student to receive 100% rebate of the cost of the course and books, they would need to obtain a passing grade (70% on IEPA administered exam) and provide a letter confirming that they have arranged for a hands-on internship at a local utility.


If they have not coordinated the hands on internship, they would be eligible for 50% rebate with a passing grade (70% on the IEPA administered exam).

If they obtain an internship/work study program at a utility within 12 months of passing the official IEPA certification exam, the balance of the tuition will be refunded to them.
