Continuing education for well drillers

We approve continuing education units (CEUs) for drillers in Washington and share information about CEU providers and educational opportunities.

Well operators need approved CEUs when applying for or renewing a well operator’s license in Washington. Taking continuing education classes allows drillers to stay informed about job safety, industry changes, and technological advances.
