CRTP: Water - Statement of Operations

 -To our First Nation Clients we wish to inform you that after 16 years of serving water plant operators, the Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation (OFNTSC) will no longer be providing the Circuit Rider Training Program (CRTP) Water Service. The Service has discontinued its operations as of May 30, 2014.

The CRTP: Water Service delivered professional training to First Nation water and wastewater plant operators across Ontario. The service was first delivered right after the Walkerton tragedy, to ensure First Nation plant operators met the same standards as their provincial counterparts. Over the years operators gained certification, community water plants operated more efficiently and most importantly; there were no lives lost.  The OFNTSC wishes to congratulate all First Nation water wand wastewater plant operators who have made valuable contributions to their communities, and who continue to do so.

The OFNTSC would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the trainers, and CRTP staff for their dedication to First Nation plant operators. We also wish them the best in their future endeavors. Through the efforts of the CRTP: Water Service staff we are very proud of their respective achievements, and services that they have delivered for First Nations in partnership with Ontario Tribal Councils. The OFNTSC’s discontinued delivery of the Circuit Rider Training Program will not impact Doug Stuart, of the Fuel Systems Management Service.
