Water Systems Council Announces Upcoming Dates for Water Systems
Primer & Refresher
WASHINGTON, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Water Systems Council,
the only national, nonprofit organization solely focused on household
wells and small water well systems, announced today that it will
conduct sessions of its Water Systems Primer and Refresher program at
the South Atlantic Jubilee in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on July 25, 2014 and
at the NGWA Expo in Las Vegas on Nov. 9, 2014.
WSC's Water Systems Primer and Refresher is a continuing education and
training program that was introduced at the 2013 NGWA Expo, in
collaboration with the National Ground Water Association. The one-day
class provides instruction on water well fundamentals; pumps; service;
components; water quality assurance; electrical safety, controls, and
regulations; community well systems, shared wells, and groundwater
heat pumps; and solar power systems.
The training is conducted by WSC member company representatives from
Xylem, Inc.; Franklin Electric Company, Inc.; Amtrol, Inc.; Flexcon
Industries; 2M Company; Grundfos Pumps Corporation; Pacific Northwest
Sales Company; and Pentair.
WSC introduced the new continuing education program at the 2013 NGWA
Expo last December and completed its second sold-out session at the
Pacific Northwest Expo in Portland, OR, on March 29, 2014. The cost
is $50 per person; attendees receive .575 CEUs or 5.75 CEPs as well as
a copy of the WSC Water Systems Handbook 12th Edition (a $75 value).
"The Water Systems Primer & Refresher provides a great opportunity for
participants to receive invaluable training from the manufacturers of
the products they use on the job every day," said Margaret Martens,
WSC executive director. "Our last session in March was completely
sold out, which indicates a demand for this type of training that WSC
is proud to provide the water well industry."
Other organizations or associations interested in hosting a Water
Systems Primer & Refresher training program should contact Martens at
202-625-4387 or via email.
The Water Systems Council (WSC) is the only national, nonprofit
organization solely focused on household wells and small water well
systems. WSC is committed to ensuring that Americans who get their
water from household private wells have safe, reliable drinking water
and to protecting our nation's groundwater resources. For more
