Detailed descriptions:


Septic 101

Provides the basics of owning and operating a system.  This class can be viewed on the web or attended in a traditional lecture style.  It is also the first requirement for the HOST-HomeOwner Septic Training Program certfying homeowners to inspect their own conventional septic systems.

Septic 201

The second and final class in the HOST program, this class provides the opportunity for a homeowner to watch a full inspection of a system.  Our most popular class, many homeowners attend this class just to become more knowledgable about the inspection requirements before they hire a professional.  Others want to become certified to inspect their system themselves.  Either way, this "hands on" class provides a great opportunity to ask questions and get expert advice.

As a reminder, only conventional gravity and conventional pressure systems are able to be inspected by homeowners.  All other systems require a professional inspection.  Conventional pressure systems in the South Holmes Harbor and Penn Cove watersheds require a professional inspection.


 ** We require a minimum of 8 registrants at least 3 working days prior to each class or the class will be canceled **
