GWWI Case Study

Modern design with a streamlined class registration system

Georgia Water and Wastewater Institute, a division of Georgia Association of Water Professionals, provides training and certification for water treatment facilities across Georgia. They came to Sideways8 looking for a more modern website and a more efficient class registration process. Along the way, we were able to make many changes that helped GWWI streamline all certification methods and have established the foundation for a student tracking database integration.
