Continuing Education
The WI DNR requires licensed water well drillers, heat exchange drillers, pump installers and rig operators to attend six (6) hours of continuing education during each calendar year for each license held. The WWWA provides 6 hours of continuing education for water well drillers and pump installers on both Thursday and Friday. Heat exchange drillers and water well drilling rig operators can receive all 6 hours on Friday, however they must attend both days if receiving credits for well driller or pump installer licenses. If you have any questions, please contact the WWWA office.
