The course work at Cuyamaca College is designed to provide the student with a body of knowledge that will prepare them for a career in the water and wastewater industries.

These courses are not intended to be test preparation courses as those courses typically drill students on specific test items or test taking strategies.  Professional Associations within the industry (AWWA and CWEA) do provide some test preparation workshops.  Their links are listed next to agency name.
