Our Mission
Each course in the High-Purity Water Treatment series
is designed to develop a deeper understanding of that particular treatment component or aspect of industrial water treatment.  Scientific theory is presented using graphic representations to create a solid foundation on which the water treatment concepts are based.  Additional learning is facilitated using internet research projects that are supported by the instructor and other students using e-mail, discussion boards, and/or class chatroom sessions.  The knowledge that will be gained from these courses will be directly applicable to the operation, maintenance, and design of industrial high-purity water treatment systems.
