Instructor Information

A positive & rewarding educational experience

Demonstrations of your products and hands-on practice for students as part of these classes is encouraged. Parts from and pictures or diagrams of your products can be used as handouts. We will provide a place for brochures, literature, business cards, and videotapes as space allows.

Individual WWET members, in their capacities at their respective agencies, cannot endorse your products or services or recommend that you be contacted to give training. Vendors are invited to present a class because a member of the water/wastewater community suggested that the presentation of their product information is anticipated to be interesting and educational. This invitation is not extended as an endorsement of any vendor’s product by WWET.

WWET-sponsored training will have State of Nevada Pre-approval for contact hours.

WWET will issue proof of completion for all training it sponsors, containing the class title, the presenting organization, the participant’s name, the date(s) of the class, and the number of contact hours approved by the State of Nevada.

Vendors and instructors may also issue their own Certificates of Completion from their company. Please pre-arrange this with the WWET representative for that class. Alternatively, mail your company’s certificates directly to attendees using your own attendance roster.
