The Water Environment Federation works to obtain continuing education (CE) credit approvals on a national level for your WEFTEC participation. In most cases, the credits issued by WEF can be converted to meet state-specific requirements that vary from the system used by WEF.

WEFTEC has received approval for CEs for professional operators and engineers from more than 40 state licensing boards. Attendees have 24/7, electronic access to CE credit documentation to apply toward professional license renewal.
