Apprenticeship/Operator Training Program

This program is modeled after other successful programs in various states and guidance provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Labor (DOL). We envision this program to be supported by employers of water and wastewater treatment staff throughout Oklahoma. The Rose State program would be unique to our state but similar programs developed across the country have proved to be effective in the recruitment, training and retention of staff that are well versed in the myriad skills that make a candidate a productive employee.

To date a committee comprised of municipalities and private organizations has developed a training curriculum and draft Standards of Apprenticeship. Standards have meet DOL requirements for academic and on-the-job training (OJT). DOL requirements include minimum hours for OJT and classroom training and require documentation of each apprentice candidate‚Äôs progress and successful program completion.

We anticipate a spring/summer 2015 kick-off for the formal program. For more information please contact Bill Clark at or 405-733-7448.
