PRIDE Continues Free Training for Water/Wastewater ProfessionalsNovember 23, 2016 by Angela Traver
Once again PRIDE is pleased to announce it will partner with the Kentucky Rural Water Association to present a series of free training and workshops for elected officials, drinking water professionals and wastewater professionals thanks to a grant from the USDA Rural Development.
The objective is to help attendees better perform their roles and enhance the operations at their facilities. The two-day workshops are free, and lunch is provided both days. Continuing education hours will be awarded.
“We are very pleased to be able to continue to offer this important training at no cost to the attendees,” said Tammie Wilson of PRIDE. “We have had lots of positive feedback on these training sessions and their value. PRIDE is proud to be a part of it.”
In 2017 PRIDE will provide four more, two-day training sessions across the region. Please watch our website, www.kypride.org for dates and more information or call us at 888-577-4339.
To date PRIDE has provided 15, two-day training sessions across our 42 county service area. During these sessions 1190 water professionals attended. For the attendees 5,035 hours of continuing education was awarded to drinking water operators while 2,792 hours were given to wastewater operators.
“We are filling up our classrooms at these trainings,” Wilson said. “We are thrilled that there is so much interest throughout the region and hope to continue this important work.”
