Continuing Education Guidelines
Guidelines for Continuing Education Unit Evaluation and Credit and a complete listing of all Provincially approved training can be found on the Manitoba Government website.
For the purposes of the operator certification criteria, one CEU represents 10 contact-hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under the capable direction of qualified instructors or otherwise presented in a manner approved by the Director. CEU courses are offered by a variety of providers. To be used towards certification the subject must be “water or wastewater works operations, engineering, science, or a related field”.
Effective January 1, 2015 operators will need at least 6.0 CEU's for certificate renewals every 5 years. Operators who hold a certificate in multiple categories must meet CEU requirements for all categories (i.e. combination of training courses in all categories).
Forty-five (45) CEU is equivalent to 1 grade of high school level achievement or 1 year of post secondary education.
The Regulation defines contact-hour as one hour of two-way communication and interaction between a learner and an instructor in order for the learner to gain knowledge and to receive
An operator for the Town of Stonewall who is certified in all four categories (the highest being a Class 2) will require 6.0 CEUs to renew all four categories; the same requirement for a class 4 certified Operator who is only certified in one category. The 6.0 CEUs required for the said operator who works for Stonewall must be courses/training related to both water and wastewater, thus the Guidelines indicate “Operators who hold a certificate in multiple categories must meet CEU requirements for both or all categories(ie: combination of training courses in both or all categories)”.
This means they could have 1.2 CEU in water treatment; 2.4 in distribution and collection; 1.2 in wastewater treatment; and 1.2 in safety/first aid, etc.
