Frequently Asked Questions

What does it take to become a licensed well driller or pump installer?

Each state has its own licensing requirements for drillers & installers. However all states require a period of time in the industry prior to licensing, often 12-24 months.

A licensing examination is required after the time-in-the-industry requirement has been satisfied. Some states require that during your time in the industry, you must document that you have gained certain fundamental drilling or pump installation experiences. This documentation may be in the form of well completion certificates or other acceptable verification.

All states requiring licensing for well drillers &/or pump installers have license preparation information available. Search your state's website or contact them by email, mail, or phone/fax and they'll be glad to help.
