BACWWE is a winning proposition for students, employees, employers, educators, and the community overall. Through BACWWE classes, students have access to instructors with the most current knowledge — and with ties to the local agencies where they'd like to work or advance their current careers. When they enter or move up in the industry, they have access to the most current job listings from agencies where they already know staff and may have visited or learned about through agencies that are already familiar from visits or internships.

Employers have a chance to promote their agencies to a talented, pre-screened group of students and to customize the specific, relevant knowledge and skills they will need on the job, through BACWWE classes and internships. Employers who participate in BACWWE may post job openings on this site, making their recruiting processes more efficient and streamlined.

Through a partnership with Solano Community College, which has offered a Certificate of Achievement and an A.S. degree in Water/Wastewater Technology for over 25 years, BACWWE is able to extend these opportunities to students and employers throughout the Bay Area. Solano's Occupational Education program provides liability insurance for BACWWE internships, as well as soft skills classes.
