Your Best TCEQ License Search Tutorial

Hands typing on a laptop keyboard

A water or wastewater professional can sometimes lose track of their TCEQ license. This leads to lapsed licenses, awkward discussions with supervisors, and potentially docked pay.

That gets a big "Nope!" from us—we don't want that to happen to you nor anyone else!

Checking your Texas water or wastewater license with the TCEQ License Search utility is fast and easy. It's so easy, in fact, it can be done in 3 simple steps. Let's take a quick look.

1. Follow the URL

Checking your TCEQ water or wastewater license starts with visiting the TCEQ website. The Occupational Licensing Division is responsible for issuing and tracking your TCEQ license.

You can start checking your TCEQ license status by visiting the TCEQ License Search utility.

2. Enter Your Information

On the TCEQ License Search page, notice the three text fields:

  • First Name or Initial

  • Last Name

  • License Number

Simply fill in the top 2 fields or the license number field. You aren't required to fill in all 3. Once you've filled in your information, click the "Search" button.


If your search returned no information, check the spelling of your name or the license number entered and search again.

3. Check Your Status

On the TCEQ License Detail page, notice the section titled License(s). The table shown lists your license(s) including some rather important information:

  • License Number

  • Last Issue Date

  • Expiration Date

  • Status

  • Continuing Education (CE) Hours


Your expiration date, status, and CE hours are the most important pieces of data. If you're nearing your expiration date and you have less than 30 CE hours, you must obtain additional hours before your license(s) expire(s).

To earn hours quickly and easily, see H2Online Training's on-demand TCEQ-approved, on-demand training courses.

The Wrap

An expired Texas water or wastewater license is completely avoidable. Checking your TCEQ license with TCEQ License Search is quick and easy, and it'll help you stay on top of your TCEQ continuing education requirements.
