The National Association of Wastewater Technicians is working to bring the long-established and sought-after NAWT Inspector Training Course to the 2017 Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport Show in Indianapolis. The workshop will be presented in a one-day format. It will cover the same nationally recognized inspection training and protocol as other formats. The WWETT Show will be held Feb. 22-25 at the Indiana Convention Center.

The course starts with an overview of how an onsite wastewater treatment system functions. The NAWT inspector protocol will be covered so individuals learn how to evaluate all the components of an onsite wastewater treatment system. Participants new to the industry will gain valuable basic information about onsite systems. Even participants with a long history in onsite wastewater treatment systems will find the information valuable and pick up a few new ideas.

The interaction between participants with an onsite industry history and those just beginning always adds an element of on-the-job understanding through the class discussions. The focus of the course is on residential systems, but some of the topics are easily transferred to other types of uses including restaurants and schools. The course is worth eight-hour CEUs for the NAWT Inspector Training Course or any other NAWT certificate that the participant may hold.

Inspections are the starting point for all operation and maintenance and having a respected, standardized protocol to begin with enhances customer service. Installers will gain an appreciation for properly installed systems by understanding that access to systems for pumping, inspecting and servicing is vital to long-term sustainability of the system.

Designers and engineers will discover what the impact of their designs will have on the ability to properly inspect, service and maintain their systems. Regulators will learn about the basic functionality of the systems they regulate and the inspection protocol that is used to evaluate them. Having a better understanding of the system allows regulators to be better stewards of the systems they regulate and the communities they serve.
