Certified Water & Wastewater Operators: The CEU Deadline for 2015-2017 License Renewal is Fast Approaching!

Posted By IAMU, Monday, February 6, 2017

The deadline for earning Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for water treatment, water distribution and/or wastewater license renewal is March 31, 2017. 

  • Grade I and II operators need to earn 1 CEU (10 hours).
  • Grade III and IV operators need to have earned 2 CEUs (20 hours) of IDNR approved courses by the deadline. 

What’s more:

  • Operators who hold both a water treatment and distribution license need to earn the required CEUs but no less than 25% of CEUs can be earned in one area.
  • A Grade I or II Water Treatment and Distribution operator will need to earn a combined total of 1 CEU in treatment and distribution and no less than 2.5 hours of the required 10 hours can be earned in one area.
  • Operators only certified in one license, either treatment or distribution, must earn 1 CEU in the area they are licensed. 

Remember: Only 20% of the required CEUs can be earned in safety.

  • A Grade I or II operator can earn 2 hours
  • A Grade III or IV operator can earn 4 hours toward license renewal by attending safety workshops/classes. 

Safety CEU courses are denoted in red when reviewing your CEUs on IDNR’s Operator Certification Database and can be accessed on the agency’s website. If you are unsure whether future courses you plan to attend meet your CEU requirements are safety courses, please check with the course provider or Laurie Sharp at or 515-725-0284.
