SC 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.
SC 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.
SC 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.
SC 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.
SC 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.
SC 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.
SC 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.
SC 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.
SC 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.
SC 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
SC Advanced Oxidation & UV Disinfection - 2 Hours
This course will fulfill 2 of your required hours for South Carolina water operators.
Our Advanced Oxidation and UV Disinfection course will introduce water treatment and distribution operators to the operation, uses, and types of advanced oxidation and UV processes including ozonation and ultraviolet treatment.
SC 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.
