Program: Getting started with WETT
The WETT system consists of several courses recognizing the various types of work
done by wood-energy professionals. Certification is achieved by completing courses
to earn educational credits and submitting a declaration of experience within
the industry. At your first course, a technical reference manual
is given to you. Even after
you've completed the Code Compliance course, you will find that the manual is
a very useful resource.
To register for any WETT course, simply fill out the registration
return it to your local Affiliate (or to the WETT office if you are registering for a course in Ontario). Send in your completed registration form and payment to reserve your place
in the course. Plan to respond promptly since there is a course maximum of 25
Why continuing education?
Continuing education is an aspect of the WETT certification process that responds
to changes in regulations, market conditions and technological change. Continuing
education provides you with the opportunity to refine your skills and knowledge of
residential wood-energy technology and ensures that you have the training necessary
to continue providing valued, qualified service to your customers.
Continuing education requirements
Five years after certification is awarded and every five years thereafter, each certificate holder must earn a minimum of one continuing education (CE) credit in order to remain eligible for certification renewal. This may include mandatory refresher courses if deemed necessary.
Successful completion of any one-day WETT course earns the certificate
holder one CE credit. In the case of the successful completion of a two-day WETT course,
two CE credits are awarded. The certificate holder still has
to take at least one WETT course every five years to maintain certification. Fortunately,
WETT has developed great new continuing education courses that you’ll want
to take advantage of as soon as possible.
