Fundamentals of Activated Sludge 1: This program explains the basis for specific process control strategies, the calculations used to implement them and the sampling programs to support them. Also included are general biological concepts related to activated sludge plants and the factors that affect these processes. This course will serve as an excellent part of MDEQ Operator Certification exam preparation.
 
Topics Covered
  • Activated Sludge Origin
  • Process
  • Sampling

Fundamentals of Activated Sludge 2

Fundamentals of Activated Sludge 2: This program explains further the basis for specific process control strategies, the calculations used to implement them
and the sampling programs to support them. There is minimal overlap between this course and Activated Sludge I, and while taking Activated Sludge I is highly recommended, it is not a prerequisite for Activated Sludge II. Therefore, this class can be considered a ‘stand-alone’ option. NOTE: This course is not for beginners in the wastewater treatment profession or those who have not been exposed to the activated sludge process in their job.

Topics Covered
  • Sequencing Batch Reactor
  • Trickling Filters
  • Rotating Biological Contractor
  • Review on Activated Sludge
  • Waste Activated Sludge
  • Return Activated Sludge
  • Nitrogen and Phosphorus Removal
  • Math Problems

Fundamentals of Collection Systems

Fundamentals of Collection Systems: 

Safe, sanitary and efficient collection of wastewater at its sources (domestic, commercial and industrial) and then its delivery to a facility begins the treatment process. It is also usually the only part of the process of which the public has much awareness. That awareness all too often happens when there are issues with the system causing problems for the public (your customers). The information covered in this course will help staff understand the basics of function, maintenance, operation, protection and preservation of the asset of your system.

Topics Covered

  • Purpose of Collection Systems
  • Common Definitions
  • Components
  • Importance of Maintenance
  • Service Delivery Options
  • Preventive Maintenance
  • Corrective Maintenance

Fundamentals of Anaerobic Digester Operation and Control

Fundamentals of Anaerobic Digester Operation and Control: The absence of oxygen makes anaerobic digestion a unique solids management process. Using consistent heat and mixing result in the reduction of solids volume and volatile solids content that creates a stabilized product (biosolids) that is used for alternative disposal methods such as land application as an agricultural fertilizer.

An additional byproduct of this method is the production of methane biogas which, when used with a combined heat and power system, can be a source of renewable energy. After taking this class, operators will have an improved understanding of the system and strategies, and be better prepared for the day-to-day tasks of completing this portion of the treatment process.

Topics Covered

  • Process Description
  • Description of Facilities
  • Management of Operations
  • Normal Operations
  • Operational Problems
  • Data Collection and Laboratory Control
  • Maintenance

Purpose and Fundamentals of Wastewater Treatment

Purpose and Fundamentals of Wastewater Treatment: This course appropriately begins with the water cycle. It is an overview of the wastewater treatment process, beginning to end. This gives the individual the concepts of the entirety and impact of the work done in treatment plants. This class will be excellent for those new to the profession and those who have had a limited scope of job duties. This will be a unique opportunity of great value to persons providing products and services in the wastewater industry.

Topics Covered
  • Why We Treat Wastewater
  • Sources of Wastewater
  • Mechanical Equipment
  • Collection Systems
  • Treatment Plant
  • Effluent Disposal
  • Basics of Laboratory Analysis
  • Health and Safety
  • Emerging Issues
