Innovation in Water & Wastewater Education

At Cole Training and Operations, we are committed to providing superior Director approved training so that our clients can fulfill their regulatory obligations efficiently and effectively. We are flexible and will work closely with your facility to accommodate your requests. Cole Training and Operations can assist with special requests including modifying existing course material to reflect the skills and knowledge the operators need for your facility.

Solid Experience

Cole Training and Operations trainers have in-depth knowledge of Ontario's drinking water regulations and have significant experience in operator training and operating municipal and First Nations water and wastewater facilities. Since most of our trainers are former municipal employees, they bring experience gained through years of operating water and wastewater systems.

An Update from IBI Group (formerly Cole Training)!


As Ontario COVID-19 measures are changing again, we would like to share what is happening in preparation in moving forward and a glimpse of how we will take careful but eager steps toward welcoming you back to IBI Group's in-classroom programs. We are anticipating a larger demand for this year to make up for lost time, and we may reach capacity, so it may be wise to get your requests in quickly to avoid disappointment. We will begin scheduling course offerings for Mid-June 2021 and onward. Onsite group offerings, when we are able to deliver them, will be accepted anytime, provided all response measures are in place for safety of our clients and staff. PLEASE NOTE that this website will eventually be converted over to our new company brand, IBI Group. Please continue to use this site for registrations until changes are made. My direct email address is now Our new office number is 289-815-2975 ext. 64306



Cancellation Policy News


If you're considering booking with us for 2021, we've adjusted our cancellation policy so you can book with more peace of mind during these uncertain times. For reservations made through to the end of 2021, or if we should enter into another wave of COVID-19, you will be able to cancel without penalty up to 48 hours in advance of training date.

Along with the operational changes being planned for your comfort and protection, we hope this policy helps you feel confident in making plans for 2021 training.


Our New Normal


Nothing is more important than protecting the health and well-being of our patrons. Since first learning of COVID-19, we have taken decisive action to stop the spread of this deadly virus by halting all programs. Moving forward, we will be providing safety measures in our classrooms that support the Chief Medical Officer of Health’s direction for physical distancing, to help stop the spread of COVID-19. In keeping with these measures, we will ensure that sanitation and distancing measures are in place for all training sessions. We are also encouraging all students to meet these safety requirements to the best of their abilities.


New Training Schedules and Onsite Training


Summer/Fall 2021 Training Schedules will be available for booking very soon. We are available to train onsite any time while following Ontario Government Safety Protocols. If you are interested in onsite training and saving a lot of valuable training dollars, please contact me for information. You may even include members from neighboring communities to qualify towards minimum requirements as well. We can help you with that too!
