Continuing Education Approval Application

 Instructions & Requirements for training providers. 

Training Providers need to submit rosters within 15 days of class completion. Without Roster submittal, Operators can not renew their certificates.

Courses can NOT include sales pitches and/or endorsements.

If you are interested in becoming a Certification School Provider, you can use the Continuing Education Approval Application and we will present it to the WPCSOCC on your behalf.  Contact us and we can help you with your application. Contact patrick.beggs@deq.nc.gov

 

Roster Submittal Methods

(Always include the Course Approval # from the NC Operator Certification Program.)

 


  

 

  • Annual Certification Renewal requires 6 hours of approved continuing education each year by December 31. 
  • Courses need to be approved by the NC Operator Certification Program and assigned a course #.  Ask the course provider for the approved NC course #. It will be in this format:  CE######## (CE with 8 digits following). Get the course # BEFORE taking the course.
  • To verify the number of continuing education hours you have earned or still need, check this report. It is an alphabetical list of all Wastewater Operators in NC, updated weekly.
