Water and Wastewater Technician at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) at Main

Freshwater is the planet's most important resource. It's necessary to sustain life, cultivate food and generate power. Although 70% of the Earth's surface is covered by water, less than 1% of it is freshwater. This natural scarcity, coupled with an increasingly environmentally-conscious society, has created a strong demand for highly skilled, well-trained professionals in the field of water management.

The NAIT Water and Wastewater Technician program – the only such program in Alberta – is designed to provide students with the important skills necessary for a rewarding career in this growing industry.

Hands-on, industry-relevant training

In this program, students will be instructed in the fields of water treatment, water distribution, wastewater collection and wastewater treatment. They will experience a combination of traditional classroom delivery, self-study and tutor-supported activities.

Hands-on training in labs will help students develop the skills to maintain and operate mechanical equipment, treat water and enter the workforce prepared and ready to go.
