Learn More About Michigan Drinking Water License Continuing Education

There are three examination categories, “F” for Filtration, “D” for Limited Treatment and “S” for Distribution. Each category has various levels, 1-5. The “1” level represents the upper most level and the “4” level is considered the entry level for community water supplies. All drinking water certification exams will be offered twice a year in May and November. The level “5” exams are for noncommunity (Type II) water supplies and are not usually of interest to community water utility employees.
