TRWA's Professional Development & Training Department offers specialized training on topics such as operations, treatment, regulations, maintenance, operator certification and management skills in both an online and classroom format.

Professional training provides opportunities for operators to upgrade their skills and improve the quality of their service. All courses, both online and classroom-based, are approved by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality; therefore, Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available to maintain operator certification.
