They have to have a masters degree of hydrogeology with a background in the natural sciences. Some states even ask for you to have a license. Some classes you would have to take are math,chemistry and geology.
They get paid a fair amount for the year and obviously it was something they wanted to do for a while. They get to go on many vacations to test the water quality and to see how much water there is in that area.
Some don’t always get to be outside they have to be in offices or laboratories testing water contents and figuring out if the water is drinkable for the people from the area the water came from.
