Certification Renewal

To renew your certifications, all WaterART Certified Instructor/Trainer/Specialists must complete one of the following options within two (2) -years of their completed certification dates, before certifications expire.

Option #1) Earn 16.0 CEC credit hours during a two-year certification period by participating in workshops and training programs. Completion of 16.0 CEC hours will re-certify all certifications in your WaterART account.  Click here for list of upcoming CEC workshops and trainings.

Option #2) Complete a new WaterART Certification, during the two-year certification period. Completion of a new certification will re-certify all certifications in your WaterART account. View the  list of Land Certification or H2O Certification programs.

To meet liability standards of care, all instructors must re-qualify every two years or sooner. Expired qualifications for more than a year will need to re-take examination process to re-qualify.

NOTE: obtaining either Land or Water Certification or CEC  hours will be allowed to  upgrade and re-qualify your Certification date for 2 years.
