The IWA International Conference is pleased to offer Professional Development Hours (PDHs) for all states and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) through CWEA in the state of California.
Some of the IWA Conference Program has also been approved for SWRCB Drinking Water Contact Hours. Please Click Here to see the approved presentations from SWRCB that you can receive credit for attending.
How many educational credits can I earn at the Conference?
By attending all sessions on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday you can earn up to 2.25 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) through CWEA and 22.5 Professional Development Hours (PDHs). You can earn additional credits by attending the pre-conference workshops on Sunday as well.
For SWRCB Drinking Water Contact Hours, if you attend all presentations approved by SWRCB, you can receive up to 15.87 Contact Hours + an additional 4.5 by attending approved workshops.
How do I earn educational credits at the Conference?
In order to receive CEU credit, you will be required to sign-in and sign-out of every session you attend. If you forget to sign-in or sign-out of a session, you will not receive credit for that session; you must do both at every session you attend.
In order to receive PDH hours, you will need to complete the PDH form located in your registration packet. These forms can be dropped off at one of the drop boxes located throughout the conference or mailed to the WateReuse office after the conference.
When will I receive credits for the Conference?
Certificates and transcripts will be made available to participants electronically within 8-10 weeks after the Conference. Please keep in mind that, although WateReuse does provide these files, most states will require the individual licensee to report continuing education credits.
In California, this will need to be done directly with CWEA.
Terminology and education credit requirements and restrictions vary widely. All participants are responsible for checking with their license/certification authority to ensure that the WateReuse technical concurrent sessions meet specific requirements.
CEU and PDH Credit Calculations:
1.0 CEU = 10 Hours of session time
1.0 PDH = 1 Hour of session time
1.0 Contact Hour = 1 Hour of session time
For Example: 1.2 CEU Credits = 12.0 PDH Credits or 17.0 PDH Credits could equate to 1.7 CEU Credits Depending on individual state regulations
