Wastewater Operator Certification

In January 2006, the Maine DEP transferred all of the administrative duties for Maine's Wastewater Operator Certification program to NEIWPCC, administered through the NEIWPCC South Portland/JETCC office. These duties include coordinating certificate renewal, record keeping, and applications for Maine's Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator exams offered each May and November. Eligibility of training courses for continuing education credit must be approved by Maine DEP. To receive training approval, proof of training and participation in training courses should be submitted directly to the NEIWPCC South Portland/JETCC office.
