Symposium participants will earn valuable Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Professional Development Hours (PDHs) by attending the symposium. Participants will receive their choice of CEUs or PDHs from one of the following organizations:
- Attendees can get 20 PDHs via the ISA as professional development hours.
- Florida state-licensed water and wastewater operators can get 2.0 CEUs to use as continuing education for their Florida state water or wastewater operator licenses.
- Florida engineers (PEs) can get 20 PDHs for their continuing education requirement
Attendees can receive a certificate for 20 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) from the ISA. These PDHs can be used towards your ISA CAP or CCST certification, or towards continuing education requirements in other jurisdictions as applicable.
Florida state licensed engineers can also earn up to 20 Florida DEP-approved PDHs by attending the symposium.
As part of the partnership between the ISA and the Florida Section of the AWWA, official certificates for these CEUs and PDHs will be issued by the FSAWWA. These CEU credits can be used by both water operators and wastewater operators.
Florida Statutes require anyone who operates a drinking water treatment plant or a domestic wastewater treatment plant to be licensed by FDEP. Beginning May 1, 2011, licensure for Water Distribution System Operators became mandatory. CEUs and PDHs that attendees receive at the symposium can be used to satisfy the continuing education requirements for their licenses
