Earn CEU's that Fulfill Your License Requirements

Continuing education unit (CEU) accredited seminars for drillers and pump installers are offered in the spring and fall (typically March, April, October, and November) ever year in Kelso, Pasco, Spokane and Tacoma. These seminars make it easier for you to keep your license certifications up-to-date and stay current with ground water industry best practices.

Members receive discounts on these CEU classes. If you are not yet a member, submit your membership application to receive a discount on your next CEU class.


Trainees Who Cannot Get Required Classroom Training for Renewal of Certificates
On March 13, Governor Inslee issued a proclamation prohibiting all public and private universities, colleges, technical schools, apprenticeship programs, and similar schools and programs from conducting in-person classes in all counties of Washington State. This prohibition will last until April 24, 2020, unless extended to a later date. Because of this, holders of training certificates with expiration dates on or after March 13 may not be able to complete the basic classroom instruction required to renew their certificates. The department will issue a policy allowing those trainees who renew their certificates without completing the required classroom instruction to continue working with their certificate in inactive status until 60 days following April 24, or later if extended beyond that date. This will allow them to complete their required classroom instruction when classes resume. This allowance will apply only to holders of training certificates with expiration dates on or after March 13, 2020 who have renewed and are in inactive (“T”) status due to lack of basic classroom instruction. It does not apply to holders of training certificates in expired, archived, or suspended status. It does not apply to holders of electrician, administrator, or master electrician certificates, as online classes are available for continuing education. Training certificate holders must renew their certificates by paying the usual renewal fee. This can be done online. Follow instructions on the renewal notice or visit the Electrical Trainee page of our website. All other requirements remain in effect such as submitting affidavits of experience, supervision, and visible display of certificates. Electrical contractors and administrators will not be penalized for employing trainees who are inactive in accordance with the above.
