The National Ground Water Association (NGWA) launched its newest certification program—Ground Water Systems Sales Specialist (GWSSS)—aimed at persons working for ground water industry suppliers.
The new certification program allows suppliers to demonstrate their knowledge in key troubleshooting areas and skills related to drilling operations and water systems. It also signifies their commitment to professionalism and good customer service.
To earn GWSSS designation, a supplier owner, supervisor or employee must pass a multiple choice exam with a score of 70% or better. To take the exam, candidates must be at least 21 years old and have 24 consecutive months of employment specific to water systems and drilling operations.
The GWSSS exam is administered through LaserGrade testing centers nationwide. Most centers are open six days a week. To learn more, visit www.ngwa.org  or call the NGWA Customer Service Department at 800.551.7379.
NGWA also offers Well Construction and Pump Installation certifications as well as a Certified Ground Water Professional designation for scientists and engineers.
