ABC revalidation surveys for Job Task Analysis

The Association of Boards of Certification (ABC) is requesting assistance with the 2010 Job Task Analysis (JTA) surveys for Water Treatment, Distribution, Wastewater Treatment and Collection Operators.

The JTA surveys are a critical step in developing new and legally validated standardized certification exams that will be released for use by ABC’s Testing Clients in 2011. Broad participation is needed from all stakeholders including operators, regulators, utility managers, certification board members, municipal managers, and retired personnel.

The Virginia DPOR is a member of ABC and uses the task analysis information from the JTA in development of items for the question banks used for DPOR water and wastewater licensing examinations.

The link to the message regarding the Job Task Analysis is located at the following website:

The JTA surveys can be accessed directly at the following links:

The surveys will remain open until Dec. 23, 2010.
