Water and Wastewater Operator Certification


2018 renewal forms are now posted. For more information, see:

Due to the implementation of the new online tool, any renewal applications received after November 20, 2018 will not be fully processed until after January 1, 2019 (updated certificates will not be placed in the mail).

In the interim, a letter will be emailed confirming that your renewal has been processed and approved. You will be able to print your updated certificate by January 31, 2019 from the new online tool.

Alberta legislation requires that specified municipal water and wastewater and solid waste management facilities have one or more certified operators to supervise day-to-day operations. Each facility's operating approval specifies the certified operator requirements.
