Tracking Participation

WEFTEC participation is tracked using badges provided during registration or onsite pickup. Be sure to scan your badge for credits when entering and exiting each session or workshop to obtain credits toward P.E. and Professional Operator licenses. Participants will be able to access credits quickly and efficiently starting on the first full day of the in-person workshops/sessions.

At WEFTEC 2023 Attendees can earn up to:

  • 18 Hours for Technical Session – 18.0 PDHs
  • 12 Hours for Workshops – 1.2 CEUs
  • Up to 8 Hours Daily for Exhibit Hall related time – 22 GCHs (General Contact Hours)

*For exhibition related credits, attendees are required to scan badges at the CE Kiosks located near hall entrances.

WEF uses a system of credit assignments that is widely accepted by state engineering and operator licensing boards. State CE requirements may vary. Many licensing boards will accept CEUs for sessions under 3 hours in length. Others use different acronyms in place of the CEU. In most instances the credits issued by WEF can be converted to meet state specific requirements that differ from the system used by WEF. This is typically managed at the state level using the following conversion method:

  • 1.0 CEU = 10 Hours of session time
  • 1.0 PDH = 1 Hour of session time
  • 1.0 GCH = 1 Hour of contact time
