KANSASWORKS will present a workshop for those interested in learning more about careers in the water quality treatment field on April 2.
The water quality treatment field is projected to lose more than one-third of its Kansas workforce to retirements in the next three to five years, which could lead to well-paying jobs for those interested in moving into the field.
WHAT: One-day exploration workshop for careers in the water quality field. The workshop is sponsored by the KANSASWORKS, Salina Area Technical College (SATC) and Kansas Municipal Utilities.
WHEN/WHERE: 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday, April 2, in Room 131, Salina Area Technical College, 2562 Centennial Road, Salina, Kan. 67401.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The workshop will explore all aspects of the water quality treatment field. In addition, SATC will preview the new Certificate of Career Exploration in Water Quality program that will be offered this summer. The program will acquaint prospective technicians with the applied science concepts that are used to operate, maintain and monitor water quality. Attendees also will learn about full scholarships available for the certificate program and meet with potential employers.
Lunch will be provided, and attendees will tour wastewater and potable water plants.
