Identification Card System
Established in September 2008, the Certification & Training Program has new certification cards for all certified individuals. The new ID card system is a big improvement and includes a photo identification field in the upper right. All water and wastewater operators and backflow installer/testers are encouraged to choose the nearest location and have a photo taken as soon as possible. Although water well drillers and pump installers are not required to have a photo taken for their certification cards, they may choose to do so at their earliest convenience.
The location options to have your new photo taken are:
Beckley District Office (304)256-6666
Charleston Central Office (304)356-4335
Kearneysville District Office(304)725-9453
Fairmont District Office (304) 368-2530
St. Albans District Office (304) 722-0611
Wheeling District Office (304) 238-1145
NOTE: Although your photo will be taken at the location of your choice, the ID card will be mailed from the C&T unit in Charleston. You will not leave the location your photo is taken with your ID card.
Please keep in mind, we plan to use the same photo for 5 years. In other words, you will not have to go have another picture taken when you renew unless you choose to do so. Also if you hold multiple licenses, we will use the same photo for all. We will keep you updated on any changes that may occur to this process.
