Evening wastewater classes are for D and C level operators. B and A Class operators will also benefit from these courses by obtaining CEU's and getting valuable review material for B and A level exams. Operators can take any of the classes listed below for CEUs to keep their certifications current. People wishing to go into the wastewater field can take the entire series of wastewater classes without any experience and take their exam; however, it should be noted that you will not be issued the certificate until you have the required job experience. One year of job experience is required for each level. Exams are taken at other locations by arrangement with the SC Department of Labor, Licensing and Registration (LLR).
