Drinking Water Operator Certification Program
We are all being affected by the coronavirus outbreak. To that end, EGLE is taking the following action regarding the upcoming drinking water operator exams.
**** The May 6, 2020 exam is cancelled ****
EGLE is evaluating potential dates for rescheduling mid-summer.
Operators who applied for the May 6, 2020 exam will likely have the following options:
- Take the exam on the rescheduled date (to be determined),
- Take the fall exam scheduled for November 4, 2020, or
- Get a full refund
There is nothing you need to do at this time.
You will be updated as more information becomes available.
We appreciate your understanding as we manage these unusual events.
These are the most commonly used and asked for resources in Operator Training and Certification. If you have any further questions, please see staff listings on the "About Us" tab.
All certification renewal information can be found here. If you have questions about renewing your certifications, you can find staff contact information on the "About Us" tab.
Certification Exams are offered twice a year in May and November. Certification exam application and study guides can be found in the link to the right. In addition to applying for exams, you can also check the number of CECs you have earned, as well as look up certification renewal information.
EGLE offers a number of independent training courses, as well as courses co-sponsored with the Michigan Section of the AWWA. In addition to the EGLE courses, we approve courses by other providers for CEC credits. This list can be found in the links on the right.
Here you will find a number of forms that you will need to maintain your certification and course approval.
