Ohio EPA Certification

C2EP/Ohio Certification

(COMING SPRING 2014!)

Description
An option for operators seeking Ohio EPA Certification. This path is only for the approved exam and does not result in ABC/C2EP certification.
An option for operators seeking both Ohio EPA and ABC/C2EP certification. ABC/C2EP certification further enhances the recognition and public visibility of those earning its certifications by designating them as "Professional Operators," a title that highlights the considerable knowledge, experience, and skills required to meet ABC/C2EP standards. Though this is a voluntary opportunity, earning this designation signifies your commitment to the profession and expertise in the industry, thereby boosting not only your professional stature as an operator, but the credibility and public reputation of the organizations you represent. In certain municipalities and union contracts operators may receive additional compensation for acquiring and maintaining multiple certificates. Obtaining a professional operator (PO) designation and ABC certification may qualify an individual for additional compensation. Please check with your supervisor and/or union representative to see if you are eligible for additional compensation.
