Scope of Work

The Operator Training Technical Committee will determine the essential components that must be covered in all operator training courses, operator qualifications, and operator certification requirements. Recommendations will be given for additional training needs, management, record keeping, staffing, certification verification, re-certification, and, where appropriate, continuing education (based on facility size and venue type). Individual courses will not be reviewed; instead, a list of essential components will be developed.
