Enrolling in WIPA

Water industry professionals, employed in the water/wastewater industry may apply to enrol in the WIPA programme.

The programme provides access to WIPA approved courses. Each course, once completed, gains a set number of WIPA CPD credits, which contribute to achieving the requirements needed to become a Registered Water Industry Professional. 

Enrolment into the WIPA programme is by way of the Management Committee assessing and approving completed applications. Applicants are notified of the Management Committee’s decision and approved applications are enroled into the WIPA programme. 


WIPA Fees 

There is a one off fee for approved applicants to enrol in the WIPA programme. Once you are enroled you will be required to pay an annual administration fee to ensure your enrolment stays current. 

Enrolment Fee $150 +GST

Annual Administration Fee $100 +GST

Course attendance incurs a separate fee at the enrolee’s own/employers cost. More information on course fees can be found under the individual course details. 

*Course fees have been set at a preliminary “early bird” level but are expected to increase as the WIPA grows and becomes more complex to administer.
