Whether you’re an industry veteran or just getting started in the septic pumping industry, the National Association of Wastewater Technicians has something to offer with its introduction and inspections training classes.

Completing these classes earns participants a certificate of completion as an inspector from NAWT and listing on a national registry of industry professionals for two years.

Inspectors are required to complete a comprehensive onsite sewage treatment systems course covering terminology, treatment, tanks, construction methods and application, or demonstrate competence in the field prior to qualifying for the inspector training program.

Participants then must complete the inspection course and pass an exam to receive the certificate, which is good for two years.

• Aug. 27-28, NAWT/UA Inspector Training in Casa Grande, Arizona. Contact Aaron at 520-621-3691 or
