Drinking Water Course Renewal Application(s)

Courses submitted for Continuing Education Credit (CEC) must relate directly to the operation, maintenance, or management of a drinking water system.  Wastewater CECs are managed separately. If you feel that your course could also qualify for wastewater CECs, please see the Wastewater Operator Certification page for the information on applying for wastewater CECs.

To obtain approval of a training course, the course sponsor must submit an Education and Training Programs CEC Approval Application and a course agenda for each training program electronically to or to one of the addresses on the application. The agenda must list, at a minimum, the topic of discussion for each segment of the program and the duration of each program segment.  (See example agenda) Please provide as much detail as you can about the topics and learning objectives of your course to help the Drinking Water Advisory Board of Examiners (ABE) make their decision. 

Following receipt of the application and agenda, the course will be submitted for approval by the ABE.  The ABE meets at least twice a year and all meeting dates are posted on the EGLE website.  Please submit all courses for approval at least two weeks before the scheduled meeting.  All applicants will receive notification of course approval or disapproval as well as specific course completion requirements after the ABE decision.  CEC course approval is valid for three years.
