Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get continuing education credit or a certificate of attendance?

We can’t guarantee that our webinars or trainings will be eligible or approved for credit by a specific licensing agency or board. For our live trainings, if there are specific credits pre-approved, this will be stated clearly on our event page or emails along with participation requirements. We are happy to provide certificates of attendance for attending an in-person event or live webinar as a courtesy. We cannot provide certificates for asynchronous webinar viewing.

What are the Environmental Finance Centers? What do they do?

Our centers view environmental infrastructure through a “finance” lens — how do we pay for the solutions and innovations needed to protect our environment. Since 1992, we’ve been working with communities to do just that — find grants and funding, create rate structures and fees, and implement cost-saving partnerships. Click for more information on the EFCN.

Where can I find information about a training I attended?

If you attended a recent training, you can check the event page for updates on available materials. Navigate to our training page, and use the “date range” filter to search a date range in the past. You can also reach out to us via our contact form.

Can I talk to someone about environmental infrastructure needs in my community or utility?

The EFCN offers no-cost assistance to drinking water systems serving 10,000 or fewer people, decentralized onsite systems, and wastewater systems that treat 1 million gallons per day or less. To request assistance, please fill out our request form under Get Help. You will be asked a few questions to help us understand your system and what kind of assistance you need. You can also reach out the EFC that serves your region directly if you have other financing or funding questions or needs. Check out our about page to learn more.
