Water Resources Management & Leadership

CSUSM and representatives of the regional water industry have joined forces to develop a unique intermediate level certificate program; one designed to familiarize participants with issues and points of view they might not encounter otherwise. While open to the general public, this program is geared toward individuals already employed in the water industry and wish to advance their supervisory skills and knowledge.
