Whether you are new to the industry or need a refresher, IRWA designed this new

tailored to build upon your existing training, education, and experience to enhance your skills and review for the operator certification exam. Each attendee will receive a copy of the training slides. Next year, a “Beyond The Basics” workshop will be conducted as a continuation of this program.
