Initial Home Study Courses

Home Study Correspondence Courses
For Water Operator Certification


NYRWA has ended the sales of the Drinking Water Home Study Initial Certification Courses, effective December 30, 2022.
Trainees who enrolled in the course prior to December 30, 2022, will have 1 year to complete the course and will still be required to complete a Grade A Compliant Laboratory Training to complete the course. We will not accept new enrollments after December 30, 2022.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, especially for our valued members. NYRWA does have an approved Grade D Initial Certification Course and will begin offerings across the state beginning in March 2023. We are also working with the NYSDOH on an approved Grade C Initial Certification Course, which we anticipate offering around summer of 2023. Please reference our Training session listings to see what is currently available. 

Thank you to our members for your understanding, and for your continued support of this association. Together, we will transition to classroom initial certification courses that will meet all requirements and your future needs. This step will allow the NYRWA and our membership to continue to supply…Quality on Tap! 


Grade D Initial Certification Course: October 17-20, 2023, Watertown

Grade C & D Initial Certification Course: December 11-15, 2023, Ghent
