Course Length: 1 Hour / 0.1 CEU*
Course Description: AWWA developed an online suite of five courses to help any utility build a risk and resilience management strategy. Additionally, these resources prepare utilities to meet the statutory requirements for community water system risk and resilience in America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) of 2018 (P.L. 115-270). This course, the first in the AWWA Utility Risk and Resiliency Certificate Program, defines the AWIA requirements for community water systems and introduces all utilities to the standards and resources designed to improve resiliency and manage risks for all-hazards. After learning how to comply with the AWIA mandate, course participants will understand how existing standards and resources can be applied by utilities to lower risk and fortify their resilience. Participants will receive an overview of Course 2: Security Practices for Operation and Management, Course 3: Risk and Resilience Management of Water and Wastewater Systems, Course 4: Emergency Preparedness Planning, and Course 5: Cybersecurity Guidance and Use-Case Tool. Course 1 provides the background needed for participants to engage in utility risk and resiliency best practices learned through completion of the AWWA Utility Risk and Resiliency Certificate Program.
This course consists of the following two modules:
Module 1: Requirements for Utility Risk and Resilience
Module 2: Overview of Utility Risk and Resilience Certificate Program
