Continuing education hours at Groundwater Week
What’s new for 2022?
All continuing education hours will be tracked through our Groundwater Week app. There are two options to track your courses:
- You can download the app and scan the QR code posted in each workshop
- An NGWA staff member will scan the QR code on your nametag as you enter each workshop.
Your course transcript will be emailed to you Monday, December 12 and you will have the option to print a copy at the education kiosk at any time during Groundwater Week. There will be no session codes given by the presenters or paper copies to track your attendance.
Concurrent education sessions will be hosted Tuesday-Thursday, with the most sessions on Tuesday. The breakdown of sessions by day —
- Tuesday: 19 total sessions, maximum 6 hours of CEUs available
- Wednesday: 10 total sessions, maximum of 4 hours of CEUs available
- Thursday: 5 total sessions, maximum of 3 hours of CEUs available.
NGWA is required to submit your course transcript directly to your state’s license agency for those with licenses in —
- New Jersey
- West Virginia
In order for NGWA to submit your course transcript, you MUST complete this online form to report your state license number(s) — https://form.jotform.com/222913805051045.
Check your state’s course approval listing
While NGWA seeks recognition of Groundwater Week education sessions for states’ various continuing education credit requirements, each state is free to determine the specific sessions that are approved and how much credit will be awarded. The information on this page is provided as a resource to help those planning to seek state credit; however, if your state has adopted continuing education requirements, you are ultimately responsible for being aware of what those specific requirements are and the completion of those requirements including the reporting format, where applicable.

Continuing education points
In addition to earning continuing education credits that may apply toward your state’s licensing requirements, continuing education points (CEPs) for renewal in the NGWA Voluntary Certification Program can be earned by attending any of the educational programming offerings at Groundwater Week 2022, as well as the McEllhiney and Darcy lectures. In addition, you may receive one CEP in recognition of time spent learning about new technologies and services on the trade show floor.
