MO Electrical Safety (NFPA 70E 2021)
This course equips electricians and other workers exposed to electrical hazards with knowledge needed to apply safety requirements from the NFPA 70E. We start by detailing the arrangement, scope, and purpose of the document, as well as define common terms. Then, we discuss securing an electrically safe work condition, lockout/tagout, energized work, grounding electrical equipment, arc flash and more. In summary, we clarify NFPA 70E safety practices used in the electrical industry. This course has no prerequisites.
MO Piping Systems: Part 2
This course dives further into piping systems by discussing the smaller components that make piping systems function, including fittings, common and special valves, strainers, filters, traps, and accessories. Preventative and repair maintenance for these components are also discussed.
MO Wastewater Treatment Processes
This course provides an overview of wastewater treatment, including the physical separation of solids, chemical treatment processes, biological processes, and solids treatment and disposal.
MO Piping Systems: Part 1
This course introduces operators to piping systems and familiarizes them with the larger components that make piping systems function, including metallic and nonmetallic piping, tubing, and hoses.
MO Maintaining Wastewater Equipment
This course provides details on a variety of wastewater equipment, including pumping stations, screening equipment, grinding equipment, grit removal systems, sludge and scum collection apparatus, and flow measurement devices. For each piece of equipment, we will cover major parts, start-up, operation, shutdown, maintenance, and safety.
MO Pumps: Part 1
This course introduces operators to pumping systems, hydraulics, basic pumping terminology, and pump curves. We will also look at a number of pump types, including end-suction centrifugal pumps, propeller pumps, turbine pumps, and rotary pumps. For each pump type, we will discuss internal parts, construction, and operation.
MO Pumps: Part 2
This course continues looking at additional pump types, including reciprocating pumps, metering pumps, and special purpose pumps. For each pump type, we will discuss internal parts, construction, and operation. We also discuss sealing devices, including packing and mechanical seals, bearings, lubrication, and installation.
MO Introduction to Water Technology
This course introduces operators to the hydrologic cycle and its effects on the structure and functions of water and wastewater systems. From there, we discuss water collection, treatment, and distribution, as well as the physical, chemical, and biological properties of water.
MO Pump Installation and Maintenance
This course introduces operators to pumping systems, hydraulics, basic pumping terminology, and pump curves. We will also look at a number of pump types, including end-suction centrifugal pumps, propeller pumps, turbine pumps, and rotary pumps. For each pump type, we’ll discuss internal parts, construction, and operation. This course has no prerequisites.
MO Valve Maintenance and Piping System Protection
Covers maintenance and operation of gate, globe, ball, plug, check, and special-purpose valves. Details actuators and various accessories. Explains valve selection based on application. Describes methods of protecting piping systems. This course has no prerequisites.
MO Fluid Mechanics
This course explains how fluids behave, especially under pressure and in motion. This lesson is divided into two major parts. The first concerns fluids at rest and describes the properties fluids have when they are standing still. The second half treats the subject of fluids in motion.
MO Surface Water Treatment Plant Operations
This course will provide an overview of surface water treatment plant operations. You will learn about surface water treatment regulations, and the basics of treatment processes, coagulation and flocculation, filtration, disinfection, corrosion control, and much more.
MO Water Distribution System Operation Overview
This course will provide an overview of water distribution system operation. You will learn the basics of the entire water distribution system as we cover topics such as pipeline operations, pumps and motors, meters, valves and hydrants, SCADA systems, and much more.
MO Source Water Issues and Pre-Treatment
Whether your water comes from a lake, stream or groundwater basin, understanding your source is the first step in providing safe drinking water. This course outlines the various source water types and the important role they play.
MO Coagulation and Flocculation
Coagulation refers to the process of using chemicals that collect contaminants in water, creating larger particles that are easier to remove. Flocculation is the process of mixing these chemicals in the water to ensure higher rate of contact between coagulants and contaminates. In this course, we'll delve into the details of this fascinating water treatment process.
MO Corrosion Control
In our Corrosion Control course you will learn about the effects of corrosion on a water distribution system, the effects of contamination due to corrosion, and corrosion mitigation techniques.
MO Distribution System Water Quality Issues
AYPO's Distribution System Water Quality Issues course will introduce to water operators the many issues that must be present in order to achieve and maintain a safe and high-quality water supply in a distribution system.
MO Groundwater Wells
Our Groundwater Wells course is designed to introduce and cover the basic components and operation of groundwater wells along with the fundamentals of maintaining safe drinking water from this types of water source.
MO Meters Valves and Hydrants
Discover how meters, valves and hydrants play vital roles in the delivery of safe drinking water to the public.
In our Pipelines course, students will discover the many important factors of operating, installing or maintaining a water distribution pipeline system.
What are the requirements to renew a Missouri water operator certificate?
Missouri Water and Wastewater Operators must complete between 10 and 30 hours every three years, depending on license type, in order to renew their license.
- Drinking Water A, B, C, & DS III = 30 hours
- Drinking Water D & DS II = 20 hours
- Drinking Water DS I = 10 hours
- Wastewater = 30 hours
- Not more than one-half (1/2) of the total renewal training hours required in a renewal period shall be credited from safety, supervisory, management, administration and financial training, or general computer courses.
The license renewal deadline for Missouri water and wastewater operators is on your license expiration date, every three years.
Your completion certificate will be available for download upon completion of each course.
