SDSU Offers Water and Wastewater Treatment Course

SDSU Offers Water and Wastewater Treatment Course

SDSU’s College of Extended Studies is offering a Water and Wastewater Treatment course as part of its Professional Certificate in Water Management and Landscape Sustainability Online program.  The course takes place April 7-June 8, with April 14 being the last day to register.


In the Water and Wastewater Treatment course, you will learn why wastewater is so important to understand, the variety of solutions needed to process and treat wastewater, the types of solutions available for treatment (methods and plant types) and the pioneering directions in which wastewater is going. You will discover new trends and innovative treatment projects that are developing locally, nationally, and globally.

A five-year study predicts a growth rate of 10-20% for water-industry occupations, which feature highly-competitive salaries across the USA. New occupational titles are being developed daily in the industry.

Instructor Joel Holt presently works for the Olivenhain Municipal Water District doing operations and maintenance at its 34-million-gallon-a-day ultrafiltration water filtration plant.

“I’m a big-picture person,” he said. “We cover pretty much every aspect of the water field.  The technology in the … field keeps getting better and better and more fascinating. I ask my students from the start what sparks their interest and water and what the main water issues are in their mind. As we go through class, they become amazed at how big the water field is and what goes into it.”

This certificate program is designed to prepare students for occupations in the industry. The courses are all online, so students can learn anytime and anywhere.

Cost of the course is $525. For more information call (619) 594-3297, email green.ces@mail.sdsu.edu or visit www.neverstoplearning.net/green.
