CERTIFIED INSTALLER OF ONSITE WASTEWATER TREATMENT SYSTEMS (CIOWTS) CREDENTIAL - CONTINUING EDUCATION GRACE PERIOD EXTENSION  - Grace Period Under State of Emergency

In response to the current state of emergency with the coronavirus, IOWWA enacted an extension of the existing “grace period” of 60 days, plus the current time of this emergency.  This went into effect on March 15, 2020. 

At this time IOWWA intends to resume workshops and crediting CE hours at the end of September.  An individual needing CE hours for a renewal made during the pandemic would have a 60-day grace period plus approximately 6 months to earn those CE hours (12.0 CE hours needed for renewal).  Your credential renewal expiration date remains the same as well as invoicing for your credential renewal.  

Renewal invoicing will continue based on your current credential cycle expiration date with the renewal fee due as determined by your credential expiration date.
