Program Description

The Yukon Water and Wastewater Operator program (YWWOP) offers a range of courses designed to meet the needs of water and wastewater operators working within municipal, territorial, federal or First Nations’ governments. We also have courses relevant to health professionals, supervisors and homeowners involved and/or interested in water quality. This program will be of interest to experienced operators as well as those brand new to the field.


The water industry is a rapidly changing and growing career area with a shortage of qualified workers to fill positions. For those experienced in the water industry, this program will help expand skills, maintain certification and keep up with changing technology. Whether students are looking to brush up their skills, or just joining the job market or are simply looking for a new and exciting field to enter, YWWOP can open a range of employment doors.


Tuition for credit programs is calculated per course credit. See Tuition and Fees.
