Idaho Rural Water Association places the health and safety of our communities in the highest regard. As such we are doing our best to comply with recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Idaho Governor's office to limit the spread of COVID-19. If you have had any cold or flu-like symptoms or a fever, or have been around someone with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, please stay home to prevent the spread of the virus.

We will be implementing 6 feet of separation between all students and instructors in our classrooms. We encourage the use of face masks, and we will have hand sanitizer available at each seat. In order to limit the spread of germs we will not be serving any water or refreshments at our training classes. We will also be limiting class size to accommodate for social distancing, so please register early! If you have questions about the cleaning regimen of any of the facilities, please contact Adrianna at 208-392-3576.

Virtual classes are still an option for those concerned about exposure. Check our training calendar for new virtual classes, or use Suncoast Learning anytime to obtain Idaho CEUs from the comfort of your home or office.
