Waste Water

Circuit Rider Training Program

CRTP provides qualified experts who rotate through a circuit of First Nation communities, providing hands-on training for the operators on their own systems. Circuit Rider Trainers (CRTs) also help First Nations with minor troubles and issues related to the operation and maintenance of their systems.

The Circuit Rider Training Program is offered to all First Nation communities across Canada through a variety of partners and service providers including private companies, tribal councils, and First Nation technical organizations. It has expanded to include assistance to operators of wastewater systems. In addition, CRTs also support 24-hour hotlines, which operators can rely on for advice during normal operations as well as during emergencies.

The CRTs often help First Nation communities coordinate certification training of their systems operators. Sometimes, they provide advice to Chiefs and Councils helping them understand their responsibilities with respect to management and operation of their water systems. The Department also assisted in the establishment of the Circuit Rider Trainers Professional Association   in March 2009. This Association has created a network of CRTs to share best practices, training materials, and provide mutual support. The Department is funding the CRTP to host an annual conference to support professional development.
