Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NYRWA is pleased to announce that our training programs have been approved and are up and running!  We started our first group on November 1, 2019.  In total, 9 apprentices are now working under this program, including 3 Water Systems Operation Specialist Apprentices and 6 Wastewater Systems Operation Specialist Apprentices.

We were also fortunate to receive a grant which will fund all text books, related instruction costs, and a small portion of the labor for all apprentices enrolled with the initial group, or the group we plan to enroll and commence on May 1, 2020.  We are sincerely grateful for this funding to help get this valuable program up and running.

If your community or system may be interested in the apprenticeship program, please contact our Apprenticeship Manager, Kevin Maine at or Jamie Herman at
