When an operator meets the professional growth
requirement, Washington Certification Services will provide
the operator with a completion letter and an official
transcript. Washington Certification Services will also
notify DOH that the operator has met the requirement.
Washington Certification Services will mail a reminder notice
to each certified operator that has not met the
requirement approximately six months prior to the
professional growth reporting period deadline date.
Note: All address changes for certified
waterworks operators must be made with DOH,
Waterworks Operator Certification Program.
Please call 1-800-525-2536 for instructions.
Certified waterworks operator must satisfy the
professional growth requirement by the reporting
period deadline. Read more about Reporting Periods.
Each certified operator’s certificate will remain
temporarily valid for two months after the December
31st reporting period deadline. Documentation
of relevant CEU or college credit earned during
the professional growth reporting period may be
submitted to Certification Services for evaluation
until February 15th of the period during which the
operator holds a temporarily valid certificate.
If the documentation submitted satisfies the requirement,
Department of Health (DOH) will provide notification
to the operator that the certificate is renewable.
- Certificates of operators that fail to
satisfy the professional growth requirement
by the deadline date will be invalid. DOH
will not consider appeals from operators for
inactivation of certifications for failing
to meet the professional growth requirement.
- Appeals of professional growth relevancy determinations
must be filed according to the
Relevancy Review Appeal Procedure - DOH.
