To achieve any WQA-certified designation, the candidate must pass a comprehensive exam and agree to abide by the WQA Code of Ethics for the Water Quality Improvement Industry. Certification is valid for 3 years. To maintain certification, completion of continuing education and payment of re-certification fee is required.
