WJTA's hydroblaster program offers training and skills assessment for technicians covering safe and effective high pressure cleaning, developed in alignment with WJTA’s Industry Best Practices for the Use of High Pressure Waterjetting Equipment. Credentials are stored in a centralized database and are transferable if a trainee changes employer.
The WJTA program is a two-part certification including the computer-based Foundational Training and instructor-led Field Verification.
WJTA Foundational Training (FT) provides an overview of recommended safety practices in the high pressure industrial cleaning industry. The FT course is a three-hour eLearning module that is reviewed and updated frequently to reflect developments in industry technology and WJTA’s recommended practices.
FT can be delivered onsite at the Health and Safety Council, the Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils (ARSC) sites, or remotely through the HASC's system of Live Online Proctoring.
WJTA Field Verification (FV) gives trainees hands-on instruction and skills verification led by a WJTA-approved Verified Trainer. Trainees undergo rigorous, entry-level training on system setup, pre-job inspection, manual and automated high pressure cleaning operations, and job completion across manual and automated shotgunning, flex lancing, and line moleing applications.
FV is available through WJTA-approved Verified Trainers at approved Verified Training Sites.
A WJTA-approved Verified Trainer delivers Field Verification training and skills assessment. Verified Trainers have successfully completed WJTA’s rigorous train-the-trainer course and have been successfully audited by a WJTA Master Trainer to ensure the accuracy and quality of instruction.

A Verified Training Site (VTS) maintains and regularly inspects the high pressure equipment required to perform Field Verification (FV) Training safely and completely across manual cleaning methods.
To assure consistency of training delivery, the WJTA will approve Master Trainers to oversee the program. Master Trainer responsibilities include instructing and evaluating the Verified Trainers, conducting audits of FV training sessions, approving Verified Training Sites, and ongoing training program development in alignment the WJTA’s industry best practices.
