UF TREEO Review and Exam Prep Courses prepare students trying to pass the State of Florida Water and Wastewater Operator Exams. These courses will not qualify you to apply to FDEP for your water or wastewater license. Exam prep classes are intense exam review and preparation provided to students who have already successfully completed the required training course.

Students, please be aware to qualify for the state exam you will need either a high school diploma or a FL Dept. of Education approved GED.  Online GED's are not accepted by FDEP.

Students must sign up separately for the state exam. For more information about the state exam, go to the FDEP Website.
