Hello members and associates,
I would like to thank you for you continued support of ASRWWA during the COVID emergency.
As a very small organization, managing around the pandemic has been a challenge. With the conditional re-openings in Connecticut and Rhode Island scheduled to occur in Mid-May, we are looking forward to getting back to normal. As a start we will issue this bi-monthly newsletter to help enhance our communications with you.
One of the first questions members ask is, “What about training”? The good news is we have 18 TCH of in-person training submitted and pending approval by the regulatory agencies that we will schedule as soon as the approvals are received. We are expecting to have the in-person training dates posted on our website (http://www.asrwwa.org) by mid-May 2021 for an early June 2021 course delivery. Additionally, we have 273 hours of online on-demand training working its way thru the regulatory approval process as well, and will post to the website as soon as it is approved.
If you have any questions, comments or requests for on-site services, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For a comprehensive list of training links, go to the ASRWWA website's training section, http://www.asrwwa.org/important-links.html.
The lists include links to websites on licensing, certification and more for Connecticut, Rhode Island and at a federal level.
