    PURPOSE

    This course provides training for onsite professionals on the proper techniques for conducting evaluations of existing private onsite wastewater treatment systems. The course creates much-needed uniformity for inspections, helping to reduce liability for those doing POWTS evaluations.  Topics include: POWTS Evaluator ethics and requirements; Evaluator/client relationship and responsibilities; evaluation procedures (data collection through final reports); and procedures for evaluating recent, documented POWTS, as well as the “unknown” POWTS.  General POWTS knowledge and experience is necessary.  A calculator is necessary.

    Upon course completion (attendance at all four classes is required), you will take an examination.  Upon passing the exam, you will receive certification as a WOWRA Certified POWTS Evaluator.
