Certification and Continuing Education - How to Keep Your Certification Active
KY-TN WEA has revamped the way we track and store continuing education credits for Voluntary Pretreatment Certificate Holders. All certificates issued prior to August 1, 2018 have been reissued with a certification date of January 29, 2019, and the certification will expire on January 29, 2024. If you did not receive your reissued certificate by email, contact Valerie Maron at (502) 365-5860.
From now on, please submit evidence of your pretreatment certification classroom hours of training HERE
. Submit the form once for each course attended. Total Classroom Hours of Training (CHT) required during the 5-year period following certification:
Level 1 Certifications - 18 CHT
Level 2 Certifications - 21 CHT
One CHT will consist of an hour of training (class, conference presentation, seminar, etc.) in any of the following subjects: pretreatment, safety issues, wastewater treatment technology (industrial or municipal), collection systems, industrial pollution prevention, sampling, and/or flow measurement. Evidence of the CHTs acquired must be submitted to the KY-TN WEA Voluntary Pretreatment Certification Board no later than two-months prior to the expiration date indicated on your certificate. The summary of the CHTs must include the date and location of the training, the instructors, the subject(s) covered, and how many hours per subject if multiple subjects were covered. Please attach a copy of a certificate, agenda or itinerary. If you have questions as to whether a particular class or presentation will count towards your required CHTs, contact a member of the KY-TN Voluntary Pretreatment Certification program prior to taking the class.
