This is the second Webinar in a series that describes Advanced Water Treatment processes primarily associated with wastewater reuse.  It will be a two-day presentation. November 28 & November 29. 

The webinar will cover membrane processes that are used in advanced water treatment, microfiltration, ultrafiltration, and reverse osmosis. The webinar will highlight process description, descriptions of the membranes, monitoring strategies used in these treatment processes, process parameters, instrumentation, and critical control points. 

The overall goal is to provide operators with the information needed to be able to understand why certain conditions in the treatment processes occur. 

This webinar, along with experience and additional training, may prepare you for the Advanced Water Treatment Operator® Grade 3 certification exam.

After completing the webinars, you should be able to:

  • Distinguish among various membrane treatment processes in terms of performance range and O & M procedures 
  • Describe microfiltration (MF)/ultrafiltration (UF) processes
  • Identify critical control points for microfiltration/ultrafiltration processes 
  • Describe reverse osmosis (RO) processes
  • Identify critical control points for reverse osmosis processes
  • Compare and contrast instrumentation systems associated with membrane technologies 
  • Define performance parameters of membrane processes such as flux, recovery, permeability, and rejection 
  • Outline residual disposal and associated regulatory requirements


Drinking water, wastewater or water reuse operators working at facilities using advanced water treatment technologies and related control processes may be interested in earning the new, voluntary AWT Operator (AWTO®) Certification.

AWT Operators protect public health by ensuring a supply of safe and high-quality drinking water from advanced water reuse facilities.

Operators who currently hold a Grade 3 certification for Wastewater Treatment Operator or Water Treatment Operator in California or Nevada are eligible to apply for the AWT3 exam. Be sure to download and read the candidate handbook at AWTOperator.org.
