Certification Code of Ethics 
Who is Affected
All certificate applicants and those renewing existing certificates are affected by the Technical Certification Program Code of Ethics statement. The Code will be included in the renewal reminders for individuals with certificates expiring January and July of 2006. The Code affects only CWEA certification applicants and certificate holders. 
The Code of Ethics Becomes Effective January 2006
We will send the Code to existing certificate holders who renew and new applicants beginning January 2006. All applicants and recertifying certificate holders will be asked to acknowledge that they have received and understand the Code beginning 2007. Until then, those renewing and applying for certification in 2006 may do so without signing the Code.
How the Code of Ethics Will Be phased-in
All CWEA certification applicants will be required to sign the Code of Ethics as part of their application package beginning with the January 2006 test. Existing certificate holders will be asked to acknowledge that they have received and understand the Code when they renew their certificates in 2007. More details about this transition will be communicated to all interested parties beginning April 2006.
