WATER PROGRAM

Hello, my name is Jeremy Rowe. I am the Water Program Coordinator for the AETA and am pleased to offer the following Water Training Schedule for 2022. For the first half of the year, due to COVID-19 and the uncertain availability of training facilities, Mandatory Courses for Water Operator Licensing will be held predominately on our campus in Camden and offered through Zoom, as well as in-person. Hoping for the best, we will resume statewide training, July through December.

Many operators have taken advantage of our live Zoom classes with positive responses. We will also continue to offer all Mandatory Courses, quarterly, through our self-paced online classes. Both Zoom and Internet courses may be taken from anywhere one has an internet connection. I look forward to seeing you out in the state (hopefully) and in class.

Jeremy Rowe, Water Program Coordinator/Instructor

ACT 605 Water Board Training

Act 605 of 2021 tasked retail water providers with additional responsibilities in managing and operating their water systems, with some exceptions. All retail water provider governing board members must complete eight hours of training. The training must be completed within one year of becoming a board member. A member with 10 years or more of service on the governing board is exempt from training. The Arkansas Environmental Training Academy, a division of SAU Tech, has partnered with the Arkansas Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Division to provide this training. There is NO FEE for Retail Water Provider Board Members to attend this training.
