Maryland State certification exams are not part of the actual Short Courses and are separate from the final Short Courses exams.  Payment to attend the Short Courses does not include the cost, nor entitle you to take the Maryland Certification Exam!  *You must apply separately to the Maryland Board of Waterworks and Waste Systems Operators to sit for a Maryland Certification Exam.

*Important change this year: Due to social gathering limitations, the Maryland Board of Water and Waste Systems Operators has set up six exams sessions across the State for those attending Short Courses.  The number of seats is limited, so it is suggested that you register early.  To register for your State Certification exam, or for answers to questions regarding the exams, please email Martin Fuhr at or call at 443-908-0441.
