Over 50% of all U.S. homes are not on sewers. The primary treatment systems for these homes are on-site wastewater treatment systems (OWTS). OWTS are commonly referred to as septic tank systems. OWTS consists of three components: the septic tank, the distribution box, and the drain field. Each component plays an important part in achieving adequate wastewater treatment. This course provides details on how to choose, design, install and operate an OWTS. The course is based upon the US EPA’s document, “Onsite Wastewater Treatment System Manual”, EPA Document No. EPA/625/R-00/008.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials. All quiz questions are reviewed during the webinar. You are guaranteed to pass this quiz.
Note to Webinar Attendees:
Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live instruction to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.

NY Board does not accept courses related to office management, risk management, leadership, marketing, accounting, financial planning, real estate, and basic CAD.
