Video Courses

The Operator Training and Certification Program administers the California State University's Small Water Systems Video Information Series and Water Systems Operation and Maintenance Video Training Series courses.  Participants can earn valuable core CEUs* that will count toward renewal of their operator certifications.

* CEUs are issued by the State of Alaska, not California State University. CEUs issued by the State of Alaska may not transfer to other state programs.
