Webinar on Taming the E-mail Beast (not hosted by MWEA)

Past MWEA seminar speaker, Randy Dean, MBA, The E-mail Sanity Expert®, is leading a new set of webinars on Thursday, January 24th, 2019, on his most popular program, Taming the E-mail Beast.  If your inbox is “driving you crazy” and you’d like tips for better e-mail management and prioritization, this program is for you. 
 
Randy is doing something pretty interesting that day – he is holding three different sessions:
(1) At 10:00 a.m. Eastern/9:00 a.m. Central that is a 2-hour intensive for both Outlook and Gmail users
(2) A 75 minute program at 1 p.m. Eastern/Noon Central specifically for Outlook users
(3) A 75 minute program at 3:30 p.m. Eastern/2:30 p.m. Central specifically for Gmail users.

When you pay for the program, Randy will contact you personally to see which session you prefer and then get you the necessary webinar log in information.  (CAN’T MAKE THE DATE?  No worries – these programs will all be recording, and ALL ATTENDEES will be given replay access to ALL THREE PROGRAMS.)  Yes, that means after the live program, you will get access to the replays also, so that you can truly develop your e-mail management skill set.
 
AND, Randy is also going to add on a replay of last year’s full webinar program on Taming the E-mail Etiquette Beast – a program all about better e-mail composition and design for better communications AND also a PDF e-book copy of his Amazon.com bestseller, Taming the E-mail Beast.  The total value of this program is more than $200, but he is offering it for only $99 right now. 
However as an MWEA member, if you use the code MWEA2019 at checkout, you will get an additional 50% off your purchase price - your total is only $49.50!
 
Here is the information and purchase page for this powerful day of webinars: http://randy-deans-e-learning-academy.thinkific.com/courses/Taming-Email-Webinar?ref=783d82.  Click on the blue "Buy $99.00" button, create an account, and then be sure to apply the code: MWEA2019 to take the price down to only $49.50!

Fund. of Preliminary, Primary & Secondary Treatment - Linden



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.
