Water is a natural resource, but it requires millions of workers to manage it, protect it, and use it for drinking water. These essential workers design, construct, and operate water infrastructure. The water sector offers a number of employment opportunities that often need specific qualifications or licensing.
The New Jersey Water Workforce Training Program Inventory is a compilation of information prepared by the Jersey Water Works CSO Committee and was published in December 2020.
The inventory highlights training programs in the water sector. Many of the training providers on the list are organizations and unions in New Jersey that focus on construction, engineering, green infrastructure, and related trades.
