MN CEU Classes:

In the spirit of sharing knowledge Water Control is offering training courses which provide contractor CEU credits. We hold these courses in our training facility and utilize experienced staff as instructors. Participation in these classes allows MN-licensed contractors to gain State of MN-certified CEU credits which are required for license renewal.

The MN Department of Labor and Industry approves the following CEU training courses:

  • Water Softeners 101 – 2 credits (Technical)
  • Commercial Water Softening: Systems and Applications – 2 credits (Technical)
