Technitrain is a technical assistance program operated by Southeast RCAP and funded by the national Rural Community Assistance Program with USDA Rural Utility Service dollars. The program provides community-specific training and technical assistance to small low-income communities and non-profit agencies serving a population of less than 10,000 to meet their water and wastewater needs. The range of training and technical assistance is broad and includes activities relating to financing such as applying for loans and grants.
Other training covers business practices such as record keeping, billing and accounting. Technical assistance relating to the physical operation of water and wastewater systems includes topics such as leak detection, smoke testing, maintaining wells and pumps, identifying technical problems in a system, and the training of system operators and local governing boards.
