The MWWA is currently using varied Training Providers to provide virtual training to MB operators. It is important that you attend all sessions listed for each training event. Failure to do so will mean that we cannot provide credit for your participation. Some of the course offerings include an exam at the conclusion of the training. You must complete the exam to be eligible for credit.
We are hoping that we will be able to provide in class training in the fall. Please ensure that you read the course description to determine whether the event is virtual or in-person training.
Correspondence courses can be purchased by selecting the course below or visiting our store.
Beginning in November 2020, the MWWA will be adding any newly acquired CEU Certificates to your MWWA account. Please follow the instructions here to access your certificates.
Your account is capable of storing up to 20 certificates please ensure that you copy and remove any certificates that can no longer be used for certification renewal to allow space for new certificates to be added.
If you are not a member of the MWWA your certificate will be emailed to you.

Water & Wastewater Refresher Courses
Interactive Alternative Delivery Courses
As a result of Covid-19, all 2021 fall session courses will only be offered by interactive alternative delivery. This adaptive delivery will be online through RRC’s learning management system (LEARN), entailing approximately 80 % voice over PowerPoint presentations and video resources, and 20 % interactive sessions through WebEx with the course instructor. All participants are required to have access to a computer and high speed internet from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm for each day of the course time frames, as outlined below. As with our face to face courses, some self study is required outside these time frames. Course costs have been reduced as a result of the change in delivery format to reflect the move off campus to remote delivery. Access to the material on LEARN will be available for 3 weeks past the course finish date, as exams do not always directly follow the course. ** The CEU’s credited from Conservation and Climate (formerly called MB Sustainable Development) are the same as for RRC’s existing face to face training.
REGISTRATION INFORMATION: Please send course inquiries and completed registration forms to firstname.lastname@example.org
COURSE CANCELLATION POLICY: Students who cancel their registration less than 8 days before the start of the course will be charged a $50.00 fee. Course cancellations after the first day of class are not eligible for any refund.

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.
