WEF/ABC/C2EP Collection Systems Operators Guide to Preparing for the Class I Certification Examination

WEF/ABC/C2EP Collection Systems Operators’ Class I Guide to Preparing for the Certification Examination was prepared jointly by the Water Environment Federation, the Association of Boards of Certification, and the Certification Commission for Environmental Professionals (C2EP). The third edition of this critical study guide has been updated to reflect new Need-to-Know Criteria and core competencies for collection system operators.

The questions included in this guide have been chosen to sample as many different aspects of a collection system operator’s job responsibilities as possible. Questions in the study guide are intended to provide an example of style and possible topics for certification exam questions.

The guide includes C2EP's education and experience requirements, tips for taking a certification examination, and sample formulas and conversions. Detailed answers to mathematical problems and references are provided.

This online activity includes two formats of quizzes for each competency. One is a timed practice quiz with scoring at the end, so that you can replicate an actual exam situation. The other is an interactive quiz, which immediately lets you know if you got the question wrong, and allows you to retry immediately.

This activity is for Class I. Please select the "buy now" button in the upper right hand corner to access Classes II-IV."
