Asynchronous E-learning720 minsBeginnerE-learning

ZDHC published Wastewater Treatment System Operator Minimum Qualifications Guidelines in February 2021 for competency requirements for water treatment plant operators. The ZDHC Guideline intends to establish standardised minimum expectations for operators' and technicians' education, course, and experience tasked with operating wastewater treatment systems at manufacturing facilities that support the footwear and apparel industries.

This Guideline applies to each facility that owns and/or operates one or more wastewater treatment systems to treat industrial, domestic, or a blend of industrial and domestic wastewater, whether or not the treatment system is located on their property. Operators need to demonstrate their level of qualification through an exam administered by ZDHC and are expected to renew their qualifications every two years. Wastewater treatment system operators and technicians should have adequate qualifications and be adequately trained to meet the expectations of the ZDHC Wastewater Guideline and regulatory compliance. It is expected that only those operators who have completed the wastewater treatment plant operator training will be permitted to operate and maintain wastewater treatment systems.

The ZDHC Foundation believes that unless wastewater treatment system operators and technicians have adequate qualifications and are properly trained, some facilities will continue to struggle in meeting the expectations of the ZDHC Wastewater Guidelines and regulatory compliance.

The intent of ZDHC WTP training is to establish standardised minimum expectations for the education, training, and experience for operators and technicians tasked with operating wastewater treatment systems at manufacturing facilities that support the footwear and apparel industries.
