Notes:

1 For site-specific operator classifications, training units to be determined by the Board on a case-by-case basis.

2 For operators that hold multiple certificates, units of training may be applied to multiple classifications if the training is approved as defined in Regulation .13.

3 For superintendents, training units approved by the Board for superintendents are required in addition to their operator's training.

4 Effective January 1, 2006, for all operator categories, except Water Class 1, Water Class 2, Water Class G, Water Distribution, and Wastewater Collection, a minimum of 50 percent of the training units submitted for issuance or renewal of a certificate shall be process related.
