While NGWA seeks recognition of Groundwater Week education sessions for states’ various continuing education credit requirements, each state is free to determine to what degree and how much credit it will award. 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 responsible for being aware of what those specific requirements are and the completion of those requirements including the reporting format, where applicable. The value of credit awarded and requirements vary by state. Those who seek to use these events should check with their individual oversight bodies as to whether they are acceptable for continuing education credit.
