ABC Collection System Operator Certification Examination Survey
The Association of Boards of Certification (ABC) is currently conducting a job analysis survey for their standardized Collection System Operator certification program (collection system operator certification is not currently required in Virginia).
The results of this survey will be used to establish the validity of the materials covered on collection system operator certification exams developed by ABC. This survey will be available online until mid-October.
Please spread the word to personnel involved in the day-to-day operations of wastewater collection systems to encourage them to complete the job analysis survey. The survey asks operators to rate a list of job tasks and their associated knowledge and abilities for frequency of performance and seriousness of incorrect performance. It should take approximately 60 minutes to complete the survey.
Internet access is required to complete the online survey. You can participate in the survey by navigating your web browser to the area located under “Recent News” on ABC’s web site (www.abccert.org)
If you have any questions during the survey please contact Ron Covert by telephone at 515-232-3623 or e-mail: email@example.com
Participation from collection system professionals is essential for ABC to develop a quality, valid certification program.
