Deionized (DI) Water Principles Course RegistrationSCTCbanner.gif (3644 bytes)

Deionized (DI) Water Principles develops an understanding of the nature of DI water as a process chemical, how it is created, and how it is used.  It includes a discussion of the various DI water requirements relative to different industries, and the methods used to achieve those qualities.  It covers many of the challenges of DI water systems and the methods used to deal with those challenges.

This course certifies that the participant has a fundamental understanding of the principles involved in high-purity water treatment technology.

For this course, you will need to pay the tuition and registration fees, and either purchase or be able to access the course CD-ROM and the course textbook.  Total cost for a new participant is $775.00, plus shipping and sales tax (where appropriate).  Those with access to the course text and course CD only need to pay the tuition of $415.00 (including associated fees).  Order below using a credit card or contact CEA (+952-471-0017).
