Grant Funding to support Free CEH Training is not always available to the ARWA.  However, all current members of the Society of Water Professionals will receive local training FREE of Charge for Water Operator needs.  Any Non-Member of the Society of Water Professionals will pay an administrative fee of $50.00 per local training session for any training not covered by a grant. This does not include the registration fees for the ARWA Annual Conference, or the AL/FL Conference.

**CEH Record Keeping

Attention State Certified Water, Wastewater and Collection System Operators. We keep detailed Continuing Education Hour (CEH) records on an ARWA Database to be used for certification renewal assistance. Forms and additional information will be furnished on membership acceptance. The process follows:

  • Member attends ADEM approved training session and receives documentation of attendance.
  • Member sends copy of documentation of attendance to Society of Water Professionals at ARWA office.
  • CEHs will be entered in ARWA's CEH Management Database.
