Training Courses at WWAC2014 now offer DEP-approved CEUs for state-licensed water & wastewater operators

Participants in the two optional symposium short courses  will now be able to get Florida-DEP approved CEUs and PDHs, thanks to our partnership with the Florida Section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA). View the official approval letter.  The courses are:

This means that attendees can receive CEUs (credit equivalent units) that they can use towards their Florida Department of Environmental Protection state water operator license and/or state wastewater operator license. Florida licensed engineers can also PDHs (professional development hours) from attending the symposium. Additionally, non-Florida state water/wastewater operator licensing agencies will also accept the CEUs thanks to reciprocity agreements with the AWWA.

Attendees also have the option of receiving IACET-approved CEUs from the ISA. The ISA is a registered IACET education provider and can issued a certificate for CEUs. These CEUs (or PDHs) can be used to satisfy continuing education requirements in other jurisdictions as applicable. They can also be used for the ongoing professional development requirements for the ISA Certified Automation Professional (CAP) and Certified Control Systems Technician (CCST) certifications.

We are able to offer the Florida DEP recognized CEUs/PDHs thanks to our partnership with the Florida Section of the AWWA. During the last few months we have been working with the Florida AWWA to be able to offer these CEUs/PDHs for our attendees in both the water and wastewater sectors. The Florida AWWA is a registered education provider with the Florida DEP, and has granted us a registered Florida DEP “course numbers” of 05134007 and 05134008. View the the official approval letter. The Florida DEP approved CEUs/PDHs will be issued by the Florida AWWA, and will be made available to attendees shortly after the symposium. An application form for the CEUs and PDHs will be available at the symopsium. Attendees will receive a CEU/PDH certificate in the mail, and their CEUs will be registered into the Florida CEU/PDH database. The cost of the certificate is included in the symposium registration.
