Operator Certification Online Training Catalog

DEQ’s Operator Certification program is now offering a number of free online training opportunities. This is to enable operators to meet the additional training requirements of the revised 710 Rule. The new Professional Development Hours (formally called renewal hours) will not be required until July 1, 2021. To access these courses, simply select from the list below, watch the short video and answer a few questions. Enter your operator ID, using leading zeros if your Operator ID number is not six (6) numbers long, (i.e. 001234), and contact information.

Each course requires all of the questions be answered correctly in order to submit it for credit. If the Submit button is not visible, please review the video and your answers to make sure they are correct. Once submitted, you will receive a confirmation email at the address provided. We ask that you use personal contact and email information so that you will retain a copy of this record in the event you move to a new employer. You must complete four hours of videos in order to receive credit.
