*Three day instructional course with optional fourth day for EVT Certification Exam.
Waterous was forging new education programs to help firefighters extend the life of their products far before the fire service industry stressed the need for fire pump maintenance education and training. Today, our courses continue to help technicians perform fire pump service and repair to maintain Waterous pumps and accessories operating at their full potential.
Waterous Mechanic Seminars are held at the Waterous Company facility in South St. Paul, Minnesota. Our seminars are three days long and include hands-on training by Waterous service staff. Seminars begin at 8:30 am on Tuesday and conclude on Thursday at 4:30 pm. The cost of the seminar is $300.00. The attendee is responsible for their own transportation, non-class time meals and lodging. Optional EVT testing available on Friday morning following class.
We limit the class size to 16-students per class. Applications are accepted on a First Come-First Serve basis.
