Over 50% of all U.S. homes are not on sewers. The primary treatment systems for these homes are on-site wastewater treatment systems (OSWT). OSWTs are commonly referred to as septic tank systems. OWTSs consist 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 EPAs 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 the course materials.
Attention to the New York State Licensed PE & LS:
Our webinars (web seminars or web conferences) have been designed to meet the "live" course requirements of the NY State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live continuing education service directly to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through telephone or chatroom. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz. Thank you for your cooperation.
NY PE & PLS: You must choose courses that are technical in nature or related to matters of laws and ethics contributing to the health and welfare of the public. NY Board does not accept courses related to office management, risk management, leadership, marketing, accounting, financial planning, real estate, and basic CAD. Specific course topics that are on the borderline and are not acceptable by the NY Board have been noted under the course description on our website.
