"I took my Grade 2 test the week after taking the DMACC 30-hour Basic Wastewater Treatment class and passed the exam with flying colors!  This is the third 30-hour Basic Wastewater Treatment class I've taken in my career and DMACC's was by far the most informative.  The instructor covered the material very well and touched base on most everything we need to do on the job.  A colleague of mine passed his Grade 1 exam with an 89% after taking the class and it was the only studying he did!"
