Every agency has a general obligation to perform due
diligence in ensuring the competency of the personnel
providing the public service and working at the public
facilities. A TCP certificate provides agencies with
written confirmation that the holder has demonstrated
a certain level of job-related knowledge, skills and
abilities. It provides a documented level of assurance
that employees are competent in safe work practices.
TCP certification provides concrete evidence to board
members and citizens that the agency is staffed with
people who know what they are doing and is competitive
in any comparison of quality of service.
Here is a list of just a few of the organizations
that use CWEA certification:
Orange County Sanitation District
Eastern Municipal Water District
Union Sanitary District
Central Contra Costa SD
Carmel Area Wastewater District
City of Redding

CWEA's new Contact Hour program is a great way to make
sure certificate holders keep-up with changing technology
and practices in their vocation. It also adds value
to training events because training is now required
to re-certify. Trainers should see increased interest
in attending training and all public events are
listed on CWEA's searchable training database.
