From beginner to advanced levels, all training requirements for state licensing of water and wastewater professionals can be met through the Water and Wastewater Training Program. Courses such as Disaster Management can be scheduled in individual jurisdictions to educate personnel from water utility managers to local elected city officials about EPA response guidelines for natural and man-made disasters. Water Schools are conducted at the Texas A&M University Riverside campus in Bryan/College Station. All approved courses earn credit hours for licensing by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

Face-to-face training includes mobile trailers able to simulate workplace scenarios for hands-on instruction with all necessary equipment and instruction materials provided. Courses include on-site sewage facilities, backflow prevention, customer service inspection and terrorism awareness and preparedness for water utilities. For operators working in rural areas, online and correspondence courses also are available.
