Cancellation Information

WEF made the difficult decision not to hold the National Stormwater Symposium. Recent developments with the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and the importance of minimizing the spread of the illness were key factors in our decision to cancel. The expanding reach of COVID-19 has also made it impossible for us to deliver a high-quality program and networking opportunities as promised. Additionally, concerns expressed by conference participants and recent travel restrictions by organizations and government agencies contributed to our decision.

Based on the unprecedented nature of this situation, within 45 days, WEF will issue full refunds to attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors of all fees paid to WEF.

Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time and for your continued support of WEF.

Continuing Education

The Stormwater and Green Infrastructure Symposium™ 2019 - Continuing Education files available online.  More info on the 2020 event coming soon.

You can check what sessions you're earning credit for live here.

You will be able to view your participation details and access your Continuing Education Credits for Workshops and Technical Sessions online. Attendees will have immediate access to their certificates and transcripts through an online portal for 1 year after this event. After that time CE files will have to be requested by email through WEF’s customer service group. These details will be posted on the Continuing Education page of WEF.org and emailed to event participants after the conference.

How Do I Receive Credit For this Conference?

To receive credit for all technical sessions and pre-conference workshops, please scan your badge when entering and exiting that activity.

If an attendee fails to scan in/out of a session(s) they must email detailed information regarding the unscanned session(s)/times to CE@wef.org.

Pre-Conference Workshops:

WEF offers Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for participation in workshops. One CEU is the equivalent to 10 hours of training or formal instruction. These are distributed for structured, relevant professional training above and beyond that of initial certification or employment in a particular field.

Technical Sessions:

WEF offers Professional Development Hours (PDHs) for participation in technical sessions. A PDH is defined as one hour spent engaged in an activity that contributes to the advancement or enhancement of professional skills or scientific knowledge of a professional engineer or operator.

When Will I Receive Credits For this Conference?

Certificates will be available immediately upon receiving the website link after the conference.

Please keep in mind that although WEF does provide these files, most states will require the individual licensee to report continuing education credits.

Note: Educational Credits will not be recorded, and documentation will not be distributed unless the attendee is a confirmed registrant of this event and the proper steps are is completed as indicated in the directions provided.

Are WEF Continuing Education Credits Approved in My State?

WEF applies for approval in many states and will be happy to work with individuals and Member Associations for additional state or agency approvals upon request.  In addition, WEF has been approved as a Training Provider through the following:

The Florida Board of Professional Engineers, the New York State Department of Education, and the Ohio EPA.  Several states typically accept WEF PDH and CEU credits without issue. For example: California (CWEA), Florida and New Jersey.

What Else Do I Need to Know?

WEF follows the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) guidelines along with state-specific regulations to achieve strict policies and procedures regarding its Continuing Education Program. WEF calculates education credits following a standardized method that is the most widely accepted by certification and licensing agencies. However, many states differ in the type and/or number of credits they will approve for educational events. Because of this, participants are responsible for exploring their state requirements and for ensuring that WEF conference credits are accepted.

Service and Support…

In keeping with IACET guidelines, WEF maintains a database of all continuing education files for a minimum of 7 years. You may contact WEF’s Customer Service Team between the hours of 8:30am and 5:00pm EST, Monday through Friday to request these files. Please call 1-800-666-0206 or submit an email request to csc@wef.org.

State Credit Calculations:

*Some state licensing boards will accept CEUs for session under 3 hours in length. Some use different acronyms for training credits. In most instances the credits issued by WEF can be converted to meet state specific requirements that vary from the system used by WEF. This is usually managed at the state level using the following conversion:

1.0 CEU = 10 Hours of session time
1.0 PDH = 1 Hour of session time
1.0 Contact Hour = 1 Hour of session time
For example: 1.7 CEU Credits = 17.0 PDH depending on individual state regulations.

*CEU & PDH credits are available for Workshops to Professional Engineers licensed in the state of New York (NYSED).
