The Board of Certification of Operators of Drinking Water Supply Facilities (" Board") is conducting a 100% Rolling Audit of all licensees' Training Contact Hours. Completion of Training Contact Hours or Continuing Education Units is a requirement of license renewal and is an important part of a Drinking Water Operator's profession. Requiring constant training and education creates a more skilled workforce which in turn results in a safe public drinking water supply for all Massachusetts residents. The audit netted the following disciplinary action.
