Decentralized Wastewater Treatment: Online Continuing Education for Designers and Installers (2019)


Onsite wastewater treatment systems are an accepted permanent solution to manage wastewater from a single house to a small cluster of buildings. Proper siting, design, operation, and management is essential to meet treatment goals and keep expenses low. This training provides a comprehensive, fundamental background about onsite wastewater treatment, designed for the professional audience.  The training consists of nine modules. The training is online and self-paced, although all modules must be completed within a three-week period. A diverse educational delivery approach is used consisting of readings, narrated presentations, videos, and web sites. Successful completion of the entire class (all modules) results in the award of 1.6 MDEQ continuing education credits (CEC) and/or 16 continuing septage credits (CSC).
