North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality - Trainings and Exams

Objective: These classes will fulfill the continuing education credit (CEC) requirement for certified operators. Attendees will receive 12 CECs for each session attended. Roll will be taken during the sessions to verify attendance. Expect to hear presentations regarding regulations and how to avoid mistakes that can lead to non-compliance for your facility. This will include general operation and maintenance topics. The courses, however, are not geared specifically to prepare operators for certification exams.
