3 Common Myths about Related Continuing Education Credits from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (link to MPCA website)

Continuing education (CE) requirements help certified SSTS professionals maintain the expertise they need to be successful in the SSTS Industry. All approved SSTS training receives accreditation to award either direct or related credits to those who attend. Below, we dispel the most common myths about training that awards related credits.

1. Related CE Credits Cannot Be Used to Renew My SSTS Certification:  False. Related (or indirect) continuing education credits are tracked by the MPCA and do count towards your renewal requirement. Individuals with any combination of Installer, Maintainer and Service Provider Certifications must earn 12 credits (or hours) every 3 years. Individuals with a combination of certifications that include any level of the Designer or Inspector specialty areas must earn 18 credits every 3 years with at least 6 credits of Soils CE.

2. Related CE Credits Are Worth Less than Direct CE Credits:  False. Related CE Credits are valued equally to direct CE credits when the MPCA evaluates your renewal requirements. However, those with a 12-credit requirement cannot count more than 6 related credits towards renewal every 3 years. For example, you could meet your requirement with 6 related credits + 6 direct credits. Those with an 18-credit requirement cannot count more than 9 related credits every 3 years. In this case, you could meet your requirement with 9 related credits + 3 direct credits + 6 soils direct credits.

3. CE that Awards Related Credits Covers Topics of No Value:  False. You earn related credits at events that do not provide training specific to SSTS in Minnesota. Learning about septic systems at a national conference or about emerging technologies is undeniably valuable. However, you would earn related credits from attending these training events because you have not received targeted education or updates on Minnesota Rules Chapters 7080-7083. The MPCA requires a minimum amount of direct credits to ensure that individuals are exposed to its SSTS Rules during each 3-year CE period.
