Drinking Water Operator Certification Program
** The rescheduled exams for July 23, 2020 have been cancelled **
EGLE has been monitoring Governor Whitmer’s Executive Orders and guidance designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As a result, drinking water certification examinations scheduled for July 23, 2020 have been cancelled statewide. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
If you were approved to write the July exam, you will automatically be rescheduled for the November 4, 2020 exam. If the November exam date will not work for you, please contact our office for a full refund. Prior to the November exam, you will receive additional information and an approval letter(s) from our office.
These are the most commonly used and asked for resources in Operator Training and Certification. If you have any further questions, please see staff listings on the "About Us" tab.
All certification renewal information can be found here. If you have questions about renewing your certifications, you can find staff contact information on the "About Us" tab.
Certification Exams are offered twice a year in May and November. Certification exam application and study guides can be found in the link to the right. In addition to applying for exams, you can also check the number of CECs you have earned, as well as look up certification renewal information.
EGLE offers a number of independent training courses, as well as courses co-sponsored with the Michigan Section of the AWWA. In addition to the EGLE courses, we approve courses by other providers for CEC credits. This list can be found in the links on the right.
Here you will find a number of forms that you will need to maintain your certification and course approval.
