Every year AOWMA has trainers delivering multiple training sessions to prepare those that are new to the industry so they can write the required exam to apply for their Certificate of Competency. Every installer in Alberta requires this certificate in order to apply for a private sewage treatment permit.
AOWMA also rolls out the Septic Sense Program. This is a program geared to landowners that require septic system. It does not go into how to design and install a system but rather gives the landowners and county staff and councillors a broad overview of what is required and how systems work.
As a Director of the Alberta Onsite Waste Management Association, I would be happy to assist the public or other installers in any way possible. If you have concerns about AOWMA or your have suggestions, please drop me a note.
