Course description

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 standardized minimum expectations for operators' and technicians' education, training, 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 qualified operators will be permitted to operate and maintain wastewater treatment systems


  • Wastewater treatment operators who operate one or more wastewater treatment systems to treat industrial, domestic, or a blend of industrial and domestic wastewater
  • People seeking to build a career as a water and wastewater treatment plant operator
  • Operators who expect to demonstrate their level of qualification through ZDHC examinations
  • Facilities that want to continue with their existing ZDHC approval or new facilities seeking ZDHC approval
  • Basic work experience in the operation of effluent treatment and wastewater treatment plants.
  • Participants with some basic knowledge of physics, chemistry and numeracy would be an added advantage.
