DEP Operator Wallet Card & Certificate

When an operator passes the appropriate certification exam(s), DEP will send an application for either initial certification or for a class and/or subclass upgrade. Operators MUST complete an application and forward it to the Certification staff. Staff will evaluate each application and recommend approval to the State Board for Certification of Water and Wastewater Systems Operators. The Board approves all applications and meets every other month. Board meeting dates are under Calendar of Events. If the operator qualifies for certification, DEP will send a certificate and a wallet card. The operator should bring the card to all DEP-approved training to ensure that he or she gets properly credited for the training.
