Utility Risk and Resilience Certificate Program
EL265 - Utility Risk and Resilience Certificate Program
Certificate Program Length: 10 Hours/1.0 CEU*
Description: This certificate program will provide a foundation for supporting a water utilities development of an all-hazards approach to risk and resilience management. The certificate program is based on several AWWA standards and associated resources (G430, G440, J100, and Cybersecurity Guidance) that facilitate compliance with provisions of America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) of 2018, which must be met as soon as March 2020. Students will learn about AWIA requirements for risk and resilience assessments and emergency response plans. This will include examples of how a utilities application of various AWWA standards and resources can aid compliance with AWIA.
We recommend taking these courses in sequential order, starting with the free Certificate Program overview course, Facilitating Compliance with America's Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 (EL260).
