On May 1st, 2020 the CWEA Board of Directors voted to discontinue the Industrial Waste Treatment Plant Operator and Biosolids Land Application Management certification programs as of July 1st, 2020. Thank you for your feedback if you participated in the comment period.
Current certificate holders will remain certified as long as they continue to meet the renewal requirements. However, as of July 1st, 2020 no new applications will be accepted and the exams will be retired.
CWEA recommends that those looking to become certified in this area review the Association of Boards of Certification Industrial Waste Treatment Operator and Biosolids Land Appliers certification programs, to see if it will meet their certification needs.
Questions about this change may be directed to CWEA Director of Certification, Norah Duffy.
