For many homeowners, septic systems are out-of-sight and out-of-mind, but YOU as a professional must convey to them how critical these systems are to their health and safety. In this online course, you will learn the steps and procedures to properly inspect and report on septic systems in New Jersey. The course has been designed to identify the steps of the inspection sequence, as well as to provide information on related science and research on the function of individual system components.

Developed using NJDEP's septic protocol for system inspections, specific topics will include:

  • The pros/cons and applicability of various test methods
  • Alternative technology systems
  • Report writing essentials and tips

Join course coordinator Wayne Ingram, PE, PLS, PP, Tom Cahill, REHS, and other knowledgeable/experienced professionals from the onsite wastewater industry for this in-depth introduction to the subject. The course can also serve as a great refresher if you are re-entering the field.
