Water University was created to recognize recognition and certification for experience and educational achievements in the field of water and wastewater management. Today, the water and wastewater industry is more complex than ever before. Economics, increased complexity and a changing society are crafting the water and wastewater systems of tomorrow and the Utility Managers of tomorrow.

Whether, an individual is a current manager or in an entry level position, the Utility Management Certification (UMC) will enhance their career opportunities and document an achievement level as the demand for qualified management personnel increases.

As baby boomers retire and a void of qualified management personnel develops, a demand will be created that provides opportunities that cross state lines. The UMC designation is a National Certification that will benefit employer and employee alike. The UMC designation is also designed to enhance the publicís perception of the industry as a professional career track and once completed successful applicants will receive a plaque, commemorating their achievements coupled with local press releases and acknowledgement in various media.
