|Schedule & Fees|
You may send your resume and reference letter at any time. (See the register drop down). If you are accepted, you'll be invited to register and pay the fees.
To reserve your onsite validation time with the regional validator, the minimum fee is $1,500. You don't pay it until the onsite visit has been scheduled. You must pay the minimum of $1,500 up front. Once the regional validator has conducted the on-site validation you will be notified of additional expenses. Those expenses may be incurred if travel beyond a 24-hour period is required to reach the on-site validation destination. You pay the validator's mileage, accommodations, meals and car rental required for them to complete the onsite validation.
Please note: Currently validation fees and annual fees aren't applicable. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are not able to do onsite validations. These validations are now on hold.
One of the goals of this program is baseline competency in the industry. This system requires upkeep. In particular:
If you have a certificate, you are responsible for keeping it current in the system. This is similar to other occupations with an annual certification or licensing fee. It also means industry can rely on certified well site supervisors to have the necessary skills and knowledge.
You’ll receive an email before your certificate expires. This includes renewal instructions. It might also include a new requirement to keep your certificate current. If you don't renew your certificate you will forfeit your current certification.
Please note: Annual fees are currently not due.
