Continuing Education Requirements

 

Since 2010, as part of the annual renewal process, certified drillers and pump installers are required to attend continuing education classes and submit proof of attendance with their renewal paperwork.

Master:

3 hours related to water well drilling

2 hours related to pump installation

Journeyman:

1 hour related to pump installation

Pump installer:

2 hours related to pump installation

Continuing education classes must be pre-approved by committee, but classes offered by the National Groundwater Association, state water well driller associations, conferences, and jubilees should be accepted.  Click here for a list of approved CEH courses..

NOTE:  Due to opposition from the WV Water Well Driller Association, internet-based electronic training courses are not currently being accepted as CEHs for water well drillers and/or pump installers in WV.  We will notify everyone as soon as an agreement can be met and this issue resolved.
