DO YOU NEED CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR YOUR UPCOMING REGISTRATION OR LICENSURE?
The Ohio Onsite Wastewater Association (OOWA) has 13.75 pre-approved continuing education (CE) hours available online in 14 individual courses, available to our members and to non-members alike. The courses were developed from recording the presentations in our two-day training program in November 2019. The courses are currently approved by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) for sewage treatment system (STS) contractors, as well as, for Ohio sanitarians.
There are now 20 more courses, developed by NOWRA, that have been approved by ODH for a total of 25 continuing education hours for both Ohio STS contractors and Ohio sanitarians.
The online training is offered via our affiliation with the National Onsite Wastewater Recycling Association’s (NOWRA) online education platform. Visit OOWA’s website under the Online Education tab at https://www.ohioonsite.org/online-education for a listing of all the courses available. Or visit NOWRA’s website at: https://www.pathlms.com/nowra/courses?category_ids=4486 to explore the OOWA courses available and https://www.pathlms.com/nowra/courses?category_ids=958 for NOWRA courses.
For registered Ohio STS Service Providers, by completing the combined set of 14 courses (Course: “Service Provider Alternative O&M Training Program for Pretreatment Products”) you will receive a two year certificate to service all pretreatment products approved after January 1, 2007 that require manufacturer’s training, other than those that discharge under the OEPA general NPDES permit or utilize drip distribution.
Additionally, for STS service providers, the Certificate of Completion of the Service Provider Alternative O&M Training Program for Pretreatment Products satisfies the continuing education hours requirement for the following two years of registration.
Completion of any of the courses will result in a Certificate of Completion for your records.
Please note: Contractors who attended all sessions on both days of the OOWA November 2019 training do not need additional CE hrs. for 2021 registration. However, if you would like additional education or you work with new employees who need basic training, the online courses can provide useful education for everyone.
