On-site Trainings

Ohio RCAP also offers on-site trainings available by demand. We provide trainings to boards, councils and other organizations. Contact any Ohio RCAP representative for scheduling information. Some of our trainings include:


Project Development

Are you facing your first big water or sewer project? Don't know anything about the subject? Ohio RCAP in cooperation with The Ohio Water Development Authority has development a training course consisting of three components for local decision makers who have never experienced a capital improvement project in their community, or are looking for help in planning a project. It covers planning, engineering selection, funding, design, and construction, and what to expect in each segment along the way.


Rate Setting

Are you facing a utility rate increase? Not sure which way to turn? Ohio RCAP in cooperation with The Ohio Water Development Authority has developed a training course for decision makers on setting utility rates, consisting of two components: rate analysis and rate structure.

Rate analysis covers topics such as characteristics of a good rate structure; overview of the rate analysis; asset management, safeguarding utility funds; and user classifications and groups.

Rate structure covers topics like types of structure; proportional to use; rate setting tools; lifestyles and economic development; and billing and usage analysis.

This is an excellent course for decision makers to understand what goes into making a good sound and defensible rate structure.
