Nevada Administrator IN 1999, CA-NV AWWA FOUNDED THE WATER COLLEGE as part of its mission to support the drinking water profes-sionals who provide safe and reliable water to millions of people in California and Nevada. The goal of the College is to make water education accessible to everyone in the regional drinking water community. The College offers more than 40 classes throughout the year at a variety of venues in Cali-fornia and Nevada. In 2014 the Section established the goal of expanding and diversifying the Water Col-lege to reflect current issues and relevant and innovative trends in the industry. We also launched two new workshops: Emer-gency Preparedness, which focuses on key strategies for water utilities in times of emergencies and natural disasters, and Water Quality & Regulations, which provides a complete overview of water quality aspects pertaining to drinking water in California. A future workshop focused on water quality issues in Nevada is planned. Visit www.ca-nv-awwa. org for a complete list of courses and work-shops. Since 2001, CA-NV AWWA has been accredited as an Authorized Provider by the International Associa-tion for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). In obtaining this ap-proval, the Section demonstrated that it complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard, widely recognized as the Standard of good practice internationally. As a result of its Authorized Provider accreditation status, CA-NV AWWA is authorized to of-fer IACET CEUs for programs that qualify under the ANSI/IACET Standard.  Both the California Department of Public Health and the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection recognize CA-NV AWWA Water College courses and workshops as a provider of continuing education units and contact hours.
