CLASS Registration Information

These training courses are provided for those interested in becoming certified or advancing certification levels in Water (Production, Treatment, and Distribution) or Wastewater (Treatment and Collection). Course hours approved by the Louisiana Department of Health.

You can only take one class as they are held in different classrooms simultaneously (Monday-Thursday from 8:00 am-5:00 pm).  A certification class is REQUIRED to take the exam on Friday. 

You CANNOT sit in water class for a few hours and then the wastewater class.  LRWA no longer allows you to switch classes for credit hours.
