IDPH EXAM NOTICE
We will be hosting the IDPH
Installers & Pumpers Exam Preparation Course and Exam.
YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER WITH IDPH
AT LEAST 30 DAYS IN ADVANCE. NO EXCEPTIONS

The goal of the conference is to bring the industry and the regulatory agencies together. In this setting we all can connect, share, dialog, and work through many of the waste water industry issues we all face as professionals. 

The conference will offer three key areas of learning; prepare waste water field technicians, provide product manufacturers instruction and training, and hear first hand from the regulative Department on codes and compliance.

We target all areas of the industry from: field laborer, equipment operator, plumbers, city officials, county officials, health department officials, inspectors, major manufacturers, and control parts manufacturers.
