To renew a Kentucky drinking water treatment, bottled water, or a water distribution operator's certificate, you must complete the required amount of continuing education hours during the 2 years before your current certificate expires.

  • Bottled Water - 12 hours
  • Limited - 12 Hours
  • Class 1 Treatment, Collection, or Distribution - 12 Hours
  • Class 2 Treatment, Collection, or Distribution - 12 Hours
