A Two-Year Water Quality Monitoring Curriculum.
Glazer, Richard B.; And Others
The Environmental Protection Agency developed this curriculum to train technicians to monitor water quality. Graduates of the program should be able to monitor municipal, industrial, and commercial discharges; test drinking water for purity; and determine quality of aquatic environments. The program includes algebra, communication skills, biology, general chemistry, instrumentation, statistical analysis, technical report writing, and water quality control processes, laboratory management and techniques, and field experience. The curriculum format is designed around behavioral objectives defining the purpose, instructional objectives, conditions, and acceptable performance levels for each course of study. Sequences of courses, individual courses, or parts of courses can be isolated or recombined to satisfy workshops, short-training institutes, seminars, or diploma programs. Thus, a variety of pathways can be used for retraining or additional training of water quality technicians. (MR)
