For certain events, AWWA provides Certificates of Completion representing CEUs, which can then be converted to a variety of units. You must verify requirements with your state licensing agency prior to registering and receiving credit for your trainings.
Instructions to access certificates are below.
AWWA provides Certificates of Completion for many trainings. We also work with several state Operator licensing agencies and attempt to obtain Operator CE approvals for select trainings.
To receive a Certificate of Completion, attendees must review the program's specific requirements, and we recommend you contact your licensing agency in advance. Instructions to access your self-service certificate are above.
In-person conferences will provide an attendance-tracking method onsite. You will track which sessions you attend each day. Please inquire onsite for specifics.
AWWA Virtual Conferences: Only some of AWWA's virtual conferences include elements for tracking attendance - be sure to ask first! Acceptance of virtual programming varies widely per state. For Operator CEUs, live attendance with interaction (Q&A, surveys, polling, chatting or quizzes) is often required. Contact your state agency in advance. Live attendees at select AWWA events will have access to certificates of completion for session attended in-full, however, this may not imply operator CEUs.
Online eLearning Courses Many states will approve eLearning courses, please contact your licensing agency for details before purchasing online training. After successfully completing a course you will have access to a certificate within your AWWA account.
Webinars Attendees who view the entire live webinar will receive an AWWA Certificate of Completion. This certificate may, or may not, be valid for continuing education in your state, as every state and license is different. Please check with your agency to determine if this AWWA Certificate will be applicable to your unique situation, as AWWA does not apply for webinars. Please see above for instructions to access your certificate of completion.
Seminars are filed for Operator CEUs in states based on attendee Operator enrollment and Operator request. See above for instructions to access your certificate of completion.
All approvals are at the discretion of your licensing agency. Please note that a Certificate of Completion does not guarantee that your agency will award you credit. It is the individual's responsibility, before registering for any education program, to contact his/her licensing agency: 1. To confirm that the education program is acceptable for continuing education credit towards your particular license; and 2. To confirm what you need to submit for credit approval. You must contact your specific licensing agency for details. AWWA recommends that you:
0.1 CEU = 1 Contact Hours
1 Contact Hour = 60 minutes of instruction (not including breaks)
How to convert CEUs:
Professional Development Hours (PDHS)
1 PDH = 60 min
Store your CE Credits all in one place with the CE Credit reporting tool. You can print your AWWA certificates, sorting by program or date range (goes back SEVEN years). You can even use the transcript as an official document!
To Access Your Transcript

Again, certificates are not provided for watching a recording.
