1 RIDEM CEU for Class I and II Designers (On July 15, 2019 Governor Raimondo signed House and Senate bills relieving RI-PEs from continuing education. Cl-III licenses are issued to PEs, therefore Cl-III is not listed with the licenses for which continuing education credit has been assigned.)

20-23 Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport (WWETT) Show

February 17-20, 2020
Indiana Convention Center

IMPORTANT DIRECTIONS REGARDING CEUs: If you want CEUs and a Certificate of Completion, you must:
  • Preselect your sessions when you register (either online or in-person at the event)
    and
  • Be scanned at the door at each session.
  1/2 CEU per hour* for presentations applicable to activities performed under the applicable license: Class I, II & IV **.
*12 CEU maximum for this event.
**Cl-III is not in the list of applicable licenses because on July 15, 2019 Governor Raimondo signed House (H 5365) and Senate (S 398) bills amending Title 5 Businesses and Professions, Chapter 5-56.1 Designers of Individual Sewage Disposal Systems. This action exempts RI-Registered Professional Engineers (PEs) from Continuing Education. Class III Licenses were issued to RI-Registered PEs.

Registration: Program and registration information are available at: https://www.wwettshow.com/en/home.html
