Operator Certification Requirements
Individuals who do not meet the above requirements may still be eligible through WPI’s system that allows for substitution of education and experience. In addition, WPI offers an “in-training” certification to those applicants that do not yet meet our education and experience requirements.
Along with meeting the education and experience requirements, the operator must pass WPI’s Certification Exam or an equivalent exam with a score of 70% or higher.
