Septic System Inspector Training
Friday, March 16, 8:00 am-5:00 pm

A one-day class focusing on the NAWT level of inspection is at the operation level.

It requires the inspector to locate and identify all parts of the onsite treatment system. Then the inspector needs to assess the condition of each part and determine whether it is operating properly or if there are system deficiencies to be corrected. To do this requires that all parts of the system be accessible and opened for inspection. This includes septic tanks, pump chambers, pretreatment media filters, aerobic treatment units and soil treatment units.

The NAWT program requires inspectors to complete 8 hours of continuing education every 2 years to maintain their Certificate of Completion. There is an annual fee for maintenance of this credential.
