To renew a license for a water well driller or pump installer, the licensee must complete 4 hours of continuing education in courses approved by the department. The continuing education hours must include the following:
One hour of instruction dedicated to the Water Well Driller/Pump Installer statutes and rules;
Three hours of instruction in topics directly related to the water well industry, including but not limited to well and water well pump standards, geologic characteristics of the state, state groundwater laws and related regulations, well construction and pump installation practices and techniques, health and safety, environmental protection, technological advances, or business management.
Continuing education must be completed within the term of the license being renewed. For example, if a license expires on January 15, 2007, the continuing education hours to renew that license must have been taken between January 15, 2006 and January 15, 2007.
For a late renewal, the continuing education hours must have been completed within the one year period immediately prior to the date of renewal.
Licensees may not receive continuing education credit for attending the same course more than once for one renewal period. Further, licensees must retain a copy of the certificate of completion for a course for one year after the date of completion. In conducting any inspection or investigation of the licensee, the department may examine the licensee’s record to determine compliance.
