NEW CWWCA EDUCATION CURRICULUM

Program Committee Chair, Keith Branstetter, would like to announce that CWWCA is developing a new curriculum for our upcoming conferences over the next few years. This will provide an opportunity to help water well professionals prepare to pass the following NGWA certifications:

Certified Well Driller (CWD)

Certified Pump Installer (CPI)

Certified Sales Professional (CSP)

The Well Construction and Pump Installation Certification program, started in 1970, is the only national certification program for contractors and pump installers in the groundwater industry. The program is designed and governed by groundwater contractors who understand the daily activities in the field. They have set realistic expectations and guidelines, but also high standards to ensure integrity. It is recognized as the leading program in the industry by numerous state agencies, which have adopted the tests for their own programs.

It is designed to demonstrate pride in your job and to promote professionalism in the groundwater industry. By participating in this program, your commitment to advancing knowledge and skill in the groundwater industry is recognized by the public, regulatory officials, and the scientific community.

Being certified:

  • Promotes confidence to the consumers in your market
  • Gives you local, state, and national recognition
  • Exemplifies your dedication to professionalism
  • Ensures you keep current in the industry with continuing education
  • Affords you a competitive edge.

In addition, these are the same exams many state agencies are using as part of their licensing requirements.

The NGWA Certification Committee, selected by the president of the Association and approved by the NGWA Board of Directors, establishes program rules and revises the exams. Once you’re in the program, you’re encouraged to propose revisions and improvements to it.

Administration and maintenance of files are handled at NGWA headquarters in Westerville, Ohio.

If you have questions about NGWA certification, contact the NGWA certification coordinator atcertification@ngwa.org or call 800 551.7379 (614 898.7791 outside the United States).

The Certified Sales Professional designation is specifically intended for supplier and manufacturer owners, operators, and employees. Earning the CSP designation is a remarkable way to demonstrate your commitment to enhancing industry professionalism and providing good customer service!

Stay tuned for more information on this coming in the June Drillstem!
