Course Procedures

To progress steadily through this course you need to establish a regular study routine. For example, you may want to set aside a specific amount of time (one hour) each day for study.

The study material is divided into five Chapters. The time required to finish each chapter varies depending upon background and experience. The important thing is that you understand each lesson!

At the end of each lesson, you will find a Cover Sheet, a Project Sheet and the Chapter Examination along with the Examination Answer Sheet. The completed Cover Sheet, Project Sheet and Examination Answer Sheet are to be filled out by the student and sent to TAWWA for grading. A passing score of 70% is required on each chapter exam. 

Important Note:  the first chapter’s project sheets and exam are due within 30 days of the beginning date of the course. You have a maximum time limit of six months to complete the course. Your exams must be proctored. When selecting a proctor, please keep the following guidelines in mind:

  1. Your immediate supervisor should be your first choice for proctor.
  2. A proctor cannot be a spouse, family member, girlfriend or boyfriend, a fiancé, anyone related to you by marriage, or anyone residing in the same household.
  3. A proctor cannot be someone who is under your supervisory influence, or at equal supervisory level with the company.
  4. A proctor cannot be someone who is currently enrolled in this or any distance learning course offered by TEEX W/WW.
  5. In keeping with the above guidelines, some good examples of eligible proctors would be a licensed supervisor at work, your company’s training manager, a college proctor, or a certified clergy person.

Please be advised that if each of your exams are not proctored from the onset, you will not be eligible for the indicated TCEQ license credit hours.

You are your own teacher. How much you learn is up to you. The more you put into the program the more you will get out of it.
