Welcome to the Home of the Best FREE Water and Wastewater Certification Training Manuals in the Country!
Ragsdale and Associates have been providing the best Water and Wastewater technical training available in New Mexico, Arizona, California, and Nevada since 1994. With over 30 years of expertise in virtually all areas of water and wastewater systems operations and maintenance, we have developed a wide range of operator training programs.
Our training programs have received national recognition for presentation and content. We do not teach the answers to an exam. We will teach you how to operate and maintain a water or wastewater system safely and efficiently. In the process, you will learn the information you "Need-to-Know" to pass any state's certification exam.
We conduct several training sessions each year in both New Mexico and Arizona. Both "Basic" and "Advanced" training is available for both Water Treatment and Wastewater Treatment. Training sessions may be 3-day sessions or 4-day sessions, depending on the subject matter and location.
Our currently scheduled trainings are as follows:
We would love for you to attend our training classes. However, if you are a water or wastewater operator and are not able to make our classes, you still need the information contained in our training manuals. Our primary business is providing classroom instruction. We have decided to provide our material free of charge to those operators that are unable to attend our classes. Please feel free to download and print our books for your own use. We only ask that do not sell or alter them.
We offer all of our training materials as free downloads. We don't ask for your personal information and you don't have to give us your credit card number. In the last two years our site visitors have downloaded over 50 gigabytes of information (the equivalent of about 8000 manuals). If you feel that the information available here has helped you get through an exam, or just made you a better operator, we would ask that you consider becoming a hero by making a contribution to the Joplin tornado recovery or Hurricane Sandy relief effort.
