Operator Certification

IMPORTANT INFO REGARDING CEC's:

The DNR recently implemented electronic credit tracking and eliminated the paper credit slips. Instead of collecting paper credit slips at the end of the day, you will now check-out to claim your credits.

If you do not check out at the end of the day, then it is assumed you did not stay for the entire training. Therefore, operators who fail to check out at the end of the day will only be granted half of the maximum number of credits.
If you need to leave early, you must also check-out so you are granted the appropriate credit amount.

For more information and to locate your online certification record, you may visit the Operator certification program Page or contact your local DNR Operator Certification representative.
