Water Quality Associations launches Certified Treatment Designer Program

The Water Quality Association is now offering a new professional certification for people who work in business-to-business sales and support. The Certified Treatment Designer seal assures water treatment dealers of getting knowledgeable technical support from people who design, manufacture, and sell water treatment systems or products. 

To earn the certification, professionals must have at least two years’ experience and complete the self-paced Water Treatment Design course before passing the certification exam. Training goals include:

  • Knowledge of drinking water regulations
  • A focus on properly identifying water contaminants
  • Appropriate treatment solution selection
  • Correctly sized equipment
  • Knowledge of product certification standards
  • Documented practical experience
  • An emphasis on ethical business practices.

Because the certification is appropriate for professionals who work directly with consumers, it does not require the learner to secure a mentor or perform field work. This program is appropriate for those involved in business-to-business technical sales and support or public health professions, for research and design engineers, or for commercial/industrial water system operators involved in troubleshooting and maintenance.

A CTD certification is valid for three years and can be renewed by completing 30 hours of continuing education and paying a recertification fee. For more information visit https://wqa.org/profcert or contact WQA’s Professional Certification and Training Department at education@wqa.org.
