2021 is a recertification year
WWT Operators need to have 20 TCHs completed by December 31, 2021

CAPACCIO is a leader in industrial wastewater treatment design. Our trainers are experts in the design, operation and maintenance of industrial wastewater treatment systems. For more than two decades we have prepared candidates for the Wastewater Treatment Operator Exam in Massachusetts and have offered a wide variety of Training Contact Hour (TCH) courses for licensed operators. Our  courses are open to public enrollment and can be customized to meet industry or company specific needs. Let us help you prepare for the next exam or keep up with your current license requirements.

Our current offerings include:

Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator Exam-Prep Series

CAPACCIO offers a live virtual training course to help you and your employees prepare for your Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators Exam. Also, this a great opportunity to earn additional TCHs as you get closer to the renewal timeline at the end of 2021.

CAPACCIO's self-paced wastewater treatment operator course prepares candidates for the Massachusetts certification exam. The course includes an introduction and eight modules that you navigate at your own pace along with quizzes to measure your progress.

Upon completing the self-study portion of the course, CAPACCIO holds four 2.5-hour virtual classroom sessions. During these sessions we review the course material, take practice exams, and answer questions to prepare for the licensing exam. Each session is approved for 2.5 TCH credits (up to 10 credits available).


Please note: We recommend you sign up for the self-paced class as soon as possible to allow time to complete the self-study portion of the course before the first classroom session. 

Another note: You do not have to purchase the study materials or sit for the exam if you would like to simply earn TCHs by participating in one or more of the live virtual review sessions. You may attend just one session for 2.5 TCH credits or all for 10 TCH credits.

On-Site Evaluation and Optimization Course


For those operators who need training contact hours (TCHs) and who are looking for ways to reduce operating costs...this course is for you.

CAPACCIO will visit your facility to conduct a wastewater treatment system evaluation and optimization. An experienced engineer will meet with your wastewater treatment operations staff and assist in evaluating and identifying ways to optimize existing systems. Training will begin with the development of process flow diagrams for existing operations, followed by a review of existing treatment operations and equipment. We will assist operators in understanding how the existing system works and identify opportunities to minimize wastewater flows and maximize treatment efficiency.

This course is a 6 hour MassDEP-approved TCH course and is billed at a flat rate regardless of the number of operators who attend from your firm.

Easily arrange your customized On-Site Evaluation and Optimization Course.
