Who's NOT Zooming who?

Our newest 4 hour water and wastewater CPE class, titled "Protecting & Maintaining Concrete & Steel Utility Surfaces," is now available! For 18 years you have turned to us for informative and intelligent courses and personal and responsive customer service. Our newest class follows that model. Coated surfaces and concrete are everywhere around us in utility plants--you need to know how to care for them!  We once again deliver the key insights, interesting aspects, important distinctions, and valuable understanding you've come to expect from a "D.R. Wanless" course! What's more, this course is very much like one of our classroom courses, containing numerous color photos alongside essential text.

This is NOT a Zoom or on-line class. Rather, we email you PDF documents to complete on your own schedule. You read the course on a PC monitor or tablet screen (or, if you must, print it out at your location, only that uses a pail of ink and a good bit of paper!). The course can NOT be completed comfortably on a phone. It may be helpful to print out the test questions and answer sheet to look at as you go through the slides. Once you study the material, simply answer the 30 multiple choice and T/F questions on the answer sheet, sign it, and send it back to us by scan to email, postal mail, or picture from your phone. (We're phasing out our creaky FAX machine, and please don't send all the question pages back!) Get at least 70% of the questions correct (21 or more of the 30), and we postal mail your completion certificate to you in a large white first-class envelope with actual stamps on it! Nothing to it! 

There are no dates and times to remember, sound or video quality issues, log-in links to keep, drop-off or access issues, "zoombombing" attacks, online security threats, bandwidth limitations, distracting interruptions, webcams or open microphones, faces to watch (and none to watch you!), listening in, or being tied to a computer and clock. Instead, read and review any parts you want, when you want, plus keep the course as a reference. Simply register as you normally would by calling Ronda, by using the add-to-cart & Paypal buttons at External link opens in new tab or window on our website (where you can see what other classes we offer), or by email to External link opens in new tab or  The simpler you do things, the easier it works! The 4 CPE hour class is $89 per person. Payment is required at time of order by check, credit card, or PO number. Regrettably, there can be no refunds or credits if for some reason you don't complete the class.

On your signed answer sheet we must have your individual email address, home mailing address, and a working phone number to reach and identify you. In accordance with operator licensing regulations, you agree to complete the course yourself, and not to reproduce or forward its content for use by others. Be aware that no copies of this course are authorized, nor have any licenses or permissions to use, adapt, or present it been given to, any other CPE provider in Virginia or elsewhere. Please bring any piracy of this course to our attention.
