FOR EXAM STUDY MATERIAL, go to the “Preparing for the Exams” webpage.

Contact the Exam Provider to sign up for Operator Certification Exams, NOT DEP.

For ease of viewing and printing, the Examination Schedule is now contained in a PDF file.

To read and print a PDF file, you must have Adobe Acrobat© Reader installed on your PC. You can download a version suitable for your system, free of charge, from Adobe.

All Operators taking exams should read the following:

  • DEP’s goal is to grant all interested operators the opportunity to register for an exam and to obtain certification.
  • To register for a particular exam, contact the “Authorized Exam Provider (AEP)” as listed in the exam schedule. DEP cannot schedule you for a particular exam date. The AEP will charge an exam session fee, which varies depending on the exam provider. DEP charges $35 for each exam session however the operator does not need to pay DEP until they apply for certification or until their fifth exam session. If an operator signs up for a fifth (5th) exam, DEP will notify them by letter and a phone call that they must bring a check or money order to the exam.
  • The exams you take will vary depending on your classification and the treatment technology at your system. Operators need to know the treatment technologies their plant uses so they can take the proper exams to be in compliance. To take the proper exam(s) and receive the appropriate certificate, operators should check with their plant supervisor, NPDES or PWS Permit or DEP sanitarian to obtain the class size of the plant (flows/gallons per day) and/or treatment technologies (subclasses).

 

Please take all necessary COVID-19 precautions and follow CDC Guidelines at all examination sites.
