Peer-2-Peer Findings Final Report

The Water Sector Workforce Profile Full Report completed in December 2015 indicated that work needed to be done to ensure that the workforce can maintain technical skills, meet certification, and satisfy evolving industry needs.  Most recently, the EOCP sponsored a pilot study to assess the effectiveness of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) operator training, and the results are very promising in terms of the use of P2P training as an effective, alternative training method.  If you are a Supervisor or Operator, or a registered training provider, who is interested in finding out more about P2P training, please contact us!

You can view the Water Smart P2P Study Final Report-March 29  here.
