All together 13 CEUs are available today on this website. As other topics are finished, they will be added.


Computer Problems

I'm having trouble getting the online CEUs to appear on my computer. What's wrong?

Problems are uncommon with any of the CEU topics on this website. Of the few problems that have been called into our helpdesk these are the most common:

  • Adobe Acrobat must be installed on the computer you are using. If you do not have it you may download it for free from this website on the "Information and Instructions" page.

  • Those having dial-up connections to the Internet may have long wait times if they try to work during the peak times for the Internet traffic. If you have a dial-up connection try working in the early morning hours or late at night when Internet traffic is less.


The Review Test

Must I take the review test?

Every CEU topic has a review test. State regulators want to know that drillers/installers have made a good effort to read and retain the information in each unit. You may cycle back and forth between the text and the test as often as you wish. There's no reason to miss any questions on the review test. It's rare for anyone to fail. There's never a charge for retaking a CEU topic.

Yes! ISWD offers its entire menu of online CEUs in a classroom-based format. One CEU-weight offerings take 1 hour of class time; two CEU-weight offerings take 2 hours in class.

The benefit of classroom-based training through ISWD is that it can be scheduled on the weekends as well as on weekdays. Licensed well drillers & pump installers who have difficulty accessing CEUs can arrange for ISWD training in a location of their choosing. This arrangement works well for groups of license holders, as there are minimum class size requirements.

Well Drilling / Pump Installing As A Career

What does it take to become a licensed well driller or pump installer?

Each state has its own licensing requirements for drillers & installers. However all states require a period of time in the industry prior to licensing, often 12-24 months.

A licensing examination is required after the time-in-the-industry requirement has been satisfied. Some states require that during your time in the industry, you must document that you have gained certain fundamental drilling or pump installation experiences. This documentation may be in the form of well completion certificates or other acceptable verification.

All states requiring licensing for well drillers &/or pump installers have license preparation information available. Search your state's website or contact them by email, mail, or phone/fax and they'll be glad to help.
