Renewal and Training Information 

The following lists are provided for operators to find approved courses that can be taken to satisfy training renewal requirements. All training hours (or equivalent approved units), for drinking water training, issued by any entity on the list of Approved Training Providers are accepted by the Department of Public Health (DPH) to meet training renewal requirements. The list of Approved Training Courses includes courses offered by other providers and courses from training providers that have been approved for specific course offerings (e.g. for Conditional Operators). In addition, the DPH accepts credits from an accredited college for any courses listed in Appendix A of the Guidance Document for Operator Certification Training Approval. One college credit = 15 training hours.
