Continuing education is one way for onsite professionals to maintain the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve high standards in the onsite wastewater treatment system (OWTS) industry. Continuing education units (CEUs) provide individuals with recognition for their efforts to update and broaden their knowledge or skills through participation in continuing education activities. By saving CEU certificates and/or stamped agendas, onsite professionals can keep a record of their training. The primary purpose of tracking CEUs is as a training confirmation for those who seek to renew their OWTS professional registration or license, or to maintain other credentials. CEU records are frequently used by individuals to give an employer, prospective employer or client information about continuing education and training pertinent to their occupation. CEU requirements are found in regulations 19 CSR 20-3.070 for licensed inspectors and 19 CSR 20-3.080 for all other registered professionals.
