OPERATOR CERTIFICATION

  

Operator certification helps protect human health and the environment by establishing minimum professional standards for the operation and maintenance of public water and wastewater systems. Operator certification is an important step in promoting regulatory compliance.  Each of the Atlantic provinces regulate their own certification programs with guidelines specifying minimum standards for certification and recertification in the province.
