Join EFCN for this webinar series designed to help small wastewater system operators pass their certification exams. The series started with a 1-hour overview of study tips and test preparation techniques, and each subsequent 1-hour webinar focuses on a single topic typically found in Level 1 and Level 2 exams. Each session will include sample questions and a short Q and A period. This series can benefit new operators aiming for Level 1 and 2 certifications, as well as currently certified operators looking to pass higher-level tests.
