CLASS Registration Information
LDH has approved certification classes

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 have been 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.

The Water & Wastewater Need-to-Know can be found at Publications | La Dept. of Health.

The instructor will provide a class manual/handout for review/studying during class.  Other study materials/manuals may be brought to class as additional study aids.  If you wish to purchase the California Manuals you can purchase them directly through these links.

Water Manuals:                          Wastewater Manuals:

Students are responsible for their own meals.

Seating priority will be given to those taking exams!  Classroom size is limited; please complete the online registration (below tickets) or mail the registration form and payment early to reserve a seat. LRWA CANNOT hold seats without payment.  Registration will close when the seating limit has been met.

Don’t forget to make hotel reservations, if needed.  LRWA does not have a room block available but the Best Western at Coushatta is offering a discount rate of $84 plus tax for the week of the certification class if you mention you are attending the Rural Water training.  

Certification Class Cancellation/Refund Policy

LRWA will charge a $75.00 processing fee for All Cancellations. Rather than cancel, consider sending a substitute or we can transfer you to another LRWA 2023 certification class.
No refunds will be issued for cancellations requested 1 week prior to class.
