workshop at the Huntsman Site

Certification/Renewal Workshop Information

Since 1998, the Utah On-Site Wastewater Treatment Training Program at Utah State University's Utah Water Research Laboratory, has provided training to health department staff, site evaluators, general contractors, engineers, system designers and others in on-site wastewater treatment. The State of Utah initiated a certification program for on-site wastewater professionals and the training program provides training workshops in support of that certification program. Those involved in the development of new housing sites, including system designers, installers, regulators and city and county planners are trained in correct principles of planning, design, material and systems selection, and system installation for on-site wastewater treatment systems currently allowed under Utah code. These programs provide public education, awareness, and training in installation and operation that can help to reduce misuses and failures of on-site wastewater treatment systems.

Registration Opening Monday, January 24, 2022

The in-person class schedule for 2022 is now finalized. However, if the pandemic worsens, we may have to change to broadcasting the classes remotely again to various locations.

Please remember that class sizes are limited, so we encourage you to check back frequently and sign up early to reserve a seat.
