MWQA Offering Virtual Exam Prep Class & Study Session

MWQA is offering a virtual prep class to assist anyone who plans to take the Water Conditioning state license exam.  Matt Wirth, an industry expert with a history of presenting seminars for MWQA, will teach the virtual training session. Registration forms for the event, which is scheduled for May 5 at  8 a.m., are available here.

One of the best things you can do to successfully take the exam is to become familiar with the Minnesota Plumbing Code. Code books can be purchased two ways:  through Amazon or directly from IAPMO.  In addition, an online version is available for viewing only, not for download.  You will be given a copy of the code to use during the exam, so it’s best that you familiarize yourself with this book prior to exam day.

Below are links to purchase or view the Code book.  Note the current Code being used is 2015; an update is not expected until later this year. There are no significant changes to the Water Conditioning section of the revised Code. 2015 Code books are currently being shipped mid-April, so if you want a hard copy for the class, order the book ASAP (see below)

There are several steps you must take in order to register to take a state license exam.

  • Submit your application to the Department of Labor and Industry, along with all required paperwork and fee.
  • Make sure you have included the documented work experience and all information they request, or your application will be denied.  
  • Once your application is approved by DOLI, you can schedule your exam online at one of several locations across the state.
  • You can take MWQA’s prep class before applying or scheduling your exam.

All required information, including links, is provided in this newsletter.  Feel free to contact the MWQA at if you have questions about the process.
