Operators are required to maintain their knowledge and skills through the acquisition of continuing education units, or CEUs, within each certification period.
Operators are encouraged to work with their supervisors to select training that meets the specific needs of their water systems as well as their own professional development goals.
You will no longer be submitting Continuing Education Unit (CEU) documentation with your renewal, you will be submitting a CEU self certification form. You will sign an affidavit on your renewal application that you have completed 2.0 CEUs within the 2 year certification period.
In March of each year, up to 25% of certified operators will be selected for audit of their CEUs. Selected operators will receive notice by postcard, and will then have 30 days to submit their training documentation for review. Acceptable documentation includes agendas, attendance and completion certificates, along with receipts for registration and payment at short schools and similar training events.
More information can be found on the CEU Audit webpage.
