Certification and Training Program



NOTICE: Certification Expiration Date has been extended from July 31, 2021 to October 31, 2021


In lieu of the difficulties related to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020, all operator certifications and requirements were extended to July 31, 2021. This was enacted to ensure adequate time for all license holders to seek available opportunities to acquire Continuing Education Hours (CEHs). Recent measures to provide in person, as well as virtual courses have been made to increase the availability of training courses. Due to continued inability for operators to acquire the required CEH’s, the extension is being continued for an additional 90 days. This notice is a reminder that your certification is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2021, however, it is your responsibility to complete all required CEH training for certificate renewal and submit your renewal application 30 days prior to the expiration date, September 31, 2021. Currently approved courses can be found at Continuing Education Index .
