The Division of Compliance Assistance's mission is to help Kentucky's facilities excel in their environmental compliance, to recognize environmental leadership throughout the Commonwealth, and to facilitate activities that enhance the welfare of Kentucky's citizens and the environment. The Operator Certification Program is one of four programs within Division of Compliance Assistance. The Operator Certification Program provides training and issues certifications to ensure that individuals engaged in performing many of Kentucky’s critical environmental activities are qualified and capable to perform their duties. The program includes issuing certification licenses to Kentucky’s drinking water and wastewater system operators; presenting classes statewide for water treatment and distribution system operators and wastewater system operators; and assisting the Kentucky Board of Certification of Water Treatment and Distribution System Operators and the Kentucky Board of Certification of Wastewater System Operators, which advise the department on its certification program implementation.
