General Licensing Information
Operator Licenses are valid from the date of issuance to September 30. Operators must fulfill renewal requirements (continuing education) during the designated three-year renewal cycle (see below).

Renewal applications are typically mailed out in August each year. If you have not received your renewal application by the end of August, contact the Water Supply & Wastewater
Treatment System Operators Licensing
 at once at (609) 777-1012.

If a license holder fails to renew his license within one year following the renewal date of the license, he will not receive a license unless he meets the current requirements for the license and passes another qualifying examination.

AWWA NJ is an administering body and its seminars and conferences are virtually always approved for water (and sometimes wastewater) TCHs.  AWWA NJ awards credits which can be viewed on this website in an individual's profile.
