Fund. of Preliminary, Primary & Secondary Treatment - Boyne City

The path of wastewater is a long and winding one, beginning at its source (domestic, commercial, and industrial) and ending with its clean, safe return to surface water or groundwater where it can take its place in the hydrological cycle. This course picks up the journey of wastewater as it arrives at the plant (influent).

Secondary clarification signifies the end of the biological treatment portion of wastewater treatment. Often referred to as ‘polishing’, it is the last component of the solids removal process and happens just before tertiary treatment or disinfection, depending on the process employed by the individual plant.

This course offers a thorough examination of the process and provides strategies and tools necessary to address the operation of this segment of treatment.

Registration: 8:30 am
Class Starts: 9:00 am
Class Ends: 4:00 pm

Fund. of Maintenance Practices I - Linden

Wastewater treatment facilities are among a community's greatest assets, both in terms of value to the quality of life of its citizenry and capital investment. It is imperative that those in charge of said facilities take the utmost care of these crucial resources.

Having a good plan for maintaining the equipment of each component is only the beginning. Personnel assigned to perform the tasks associated with prolonging the life of the system assets must receive proper training. While some of the maintenance can be quite specific to certain devices, there are many general principles, practices and skills that are helpful in almost every maintenance application.

Persons completing this class will have a better base of knowledge and/or skills towards contributing to the overall success of any maintenance program.
