Wastewater Trainers & Educators

CWEA Trainers and Event Planners
CWEA training and educational events sponsored by local sections and committees do not  need to be pre-approved before contact hours are issued. However, we can only accept those contact hours that are relevant to the vocation.  Learn more about issuing contact hours by clicking the link above.
In-house Trainers
If you are employed by a wastewater organization to train its employees, then you are not required to pre-approve the training events you, or a training consultant, perform onsite. Although pre-approval is not required, CWEA has final authority in determining whether a training event is acceptable for its continuing education requirement. Learn more about making sure your training events will be accepted for CWEA contact hours.
All other trainers
Add value to your training and educational events by awarding contact hours to CWEA certificate holders. To recertify, all CWEA certificate holders must participate in 12 contact hours of vocation-related education/training every two years. CWEA requires all private trainers, consultants, and other third party trainers to have their educational programs pre-approved before contact hours are accepted as part of the recertification requirement for CWEA certificate holders.
