Onsite Wastewater Practitioner Training
The Western Canada Onsite Wastewater Management Association provides an excellent industry training program through its provincial chapters for Onsite Wastewater Practitioners. This training is recognized in the Western Provinces through the New West Partnership Agreement (formerly TILMA). It is recognized federally through the Agreement on Internal Trade. These training programs have been found to meet or exceed the requirements of the Agreement on Internal Trade and the Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement.
As well as this industry certification program, WCOWMA’s provincial chapters offer individual field and classroom training sessions for continuing education purposes. For information on training opportunities in your area, contact the WCOWMA office or the provincial chapter office in your region.
The Association engages the general public through its Septic Sense education program, which focuses on proper operation and maintenance of onsite wastewater systems, also called septic systems.
