Subsurface Wastewater Team Certifications

The Subsurface Wastewater Team offers two voluntary certification programs: Certified System Inspectors and Certified System Installers.

Onsite Sewage Disposal System Inspectors

The Division of Health Engineering has established minimum criteria for evaluating and reporting on existing subsurface wastewater disposal systems. This voluntary program is being promoted as an important component of the real estate transaction process.

Onsite Wastewater Disposal System Installers

The Division of Health Engineering has developed a non-regulatory incentive driven program to broaden the use of proper septic system installation techniques, for individuals who install onsite wastewater disposal systems.  A secondary purpose is to recognize installers who make an effort to educate themselves on these techniques and to provide an incentive to continue education efforts on proper installation techniques.
