The Water Well Contractor Continuing Education Program (CE Program) implements the CE requirements of Chapter 373, Florida Statues, Regulation of Wells and Chapter 62-531, Florida Administrative Code, Water Well Contractor Licesning Requirements.  The CE Program is designed to encourage the learning of new well drilling technologies, methods and practices, improve the industry’s professionalism, business management practices, health and safety practices, and to enhance learning of the State of Florida water well contractor licensing, permitting and water well construction rules.

CE Program does NOT issue water well contractor licenses nor does it confirm the status of a Water Well Contractor’s license.   Only the State of Florida Water Management Districts (WMDs) are authorized to issue new or renew water well contractor licenses. Click here for WMD contractor licensing contact information.
