Water Exam Cram 

Hydrolysis is back with their Water Exam Cram and it's better than ever!  We were so sorry to see our Water Cram Instructor, Josh Baile, hang up his trainer hat last year in exchange for a full-time gig managing a Water District.  He's back to teach while continuing to manage his District.  We're trying something NEW to accommodate his schedule and bring YOU the Water Cram.  Josh is planning to teach one day of the Water Cram on a continuous cycle.  Get TUs on a regular schedule and prepare for upcoming exams without having to leave the plant for a solid week at a time.  Please join Josh in Castle Rock in April, May, and June of this year.  Come for just one day, or join him for two or three.  Days do not need to be taken in order. 

Check back for spring dates.


NOTE:  This class begins at 9:00 am each day.

A minimum of 5 attendees is needed or classes are cancelled.

Each day is packed with relevant water topics including:

  • Water Math
  • Water Chemistry
  • Microbiology
  • Hydraulics
  • Pumps
  • Water Treatment
  • Distribution System Basics
  • Pumps and Pumping Systems
  • Water Regulations and Monitoring Requirements (See some practice questions here.)
