The course is self-paced and each lesson provides a slide presentation. The device being used to access the course content must have the latest version of an internet browser installed and we recommend a display resolution of 1024 X 768.

The online course does not provide an audio narrative. The student visually observes the slide presentation. There is a brief quiz provided after each course topic for the student to assess his or her learning experience - to determine whether the information has been understood.

There is a final exam, consisting of 100 multiple-choice questions, provided on-line after the student completes all of the course lessons. The program provides the student with three opportunities to pass the exam with a score of 70% or better. After the student successfully completes the course lessons and passes the final exam, the FW&PCOA will mail the student a certificate of course completion. This certificate is used when applying to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator Class B licensing exam, to demonstrate completion of the requisite training course.

Please note, FDEP requires that you have an active Florida Class C license to sit for a Class B licensing exam.
