What is a Training Provider?
Operators are required to take “Director Approved” continuing education to meet the requirements for renewing drinking water certificates. A training provider is an organization or educator that delivers Director Approved courses in the area of drinking water operations.
Training providers wishing to get courses approved by the Director must submit an online application for review.
If you would like to have your course reviewed or reassessed to ensure it meets the criteria for Director approval, please see the Getting Your Course Approved section for more information.
Wastewater courses cannot be considered for Director approval; however, they can be reviewed to determine the course length.
For the purposes of calculating education or training obtained through continuing education, one CEU equals ten hours of training.
If you would like to have your course reviewed to see if it meets the requirements for Director Approval, or to have it assessed for CEU value, there are certain criteria and steps to follow. Please see the Getting Your Course Approved section for more information.
About the Director Approval process: Neither the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) nor OWWCO endorses any training course or organization. Courses are not reviewed for the quality of instruction or the accuracy of the content. The views or opinions provided in the training are those of the training providers and not those of the Ministry.
