Septic Sense Workshop @ Camrose County Office, Camrose County

Be septic savvy.
With proper operation and regular maintenance, your septic system will function better, last longer and protect the quality of groundwater. Committing a little attention to the care of your system will help you avoid costly repairs or replacement of your system.

What you can expect.
At a workshop you will learn how to understand, assess and manage your private septic system, enabling you to protect your investment and the environment. If you have a septic system on your rural property, you will benefit from attending a workshop.

Operation & Maintenance Levels I & II @ Red Deer, AB
Dec 17 – Dec 20 all-day

The AOWMA has contracted with the National Association of Wastewater Technicians to provide a four-day training program for Operation and Maintenance.  The training is split into two parts:  Part One covers on business aspects of O and M and the operation and maintenance required for conventional systems including trenches, beds, mounds and at-grades with some aerobic tank discussion. Part Two concentrates more specifically on Aerobic Tanks, drip irrigation, single pass and re-circulating media filters. Both parts are conducted over a two-day period, with a field hands on session and an exam administered at the conclusion.

Those who have already completed this program must update their qualifications every two years; this program provides that opportunity.  Those wishing to expand their scope of work into maintenance provision may achieve formal Certification through this program.

NAWT is a member of the Consortium of Institutes for Decentralized Wastewater Treatment (CIDWT). The CIDWT has been instrumental with the assistance of funding from the USEPA to prepare standard educational materials that can be used nationwide. They developed both a University and Practitioner curriculum and then followed this with a comprehensive manual and set of training materials on Operation and Maintenance. They have also conducted train the trainer sessions on the development of training courses and the use of the materials. NAWT participated at all stages of development of these materials.

NAWT will record and have available on their web site www.NAWT.org a record of those contractors and pumpers that have passed the Certificate of Completion exams by state/province with their contact information.

Those who complete this training program will be listed on the AOWMA Locate-a-Pro service as Maintenance Providers.

The cost for the course is members:  $1995 + gst
The cost for non-members is $2495 + gst

Please contact the AOWMA office at 877-489-7471 to register.

WWETT Show 2019 @ Indiana Convention Center

WWETT Show 2019 @ Indiana Convention Center

Why is the WWETT Show – Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport – called the Industry Marketplace? Because it is the only place where professionals in the wastewater and environmental services industries can gather to do all this under one roof:

  • Check out the latest products and technology – ready to be bought right off the show floor.
  • See the equipment in action at live demos – on the Expo floor and at WWETT Live! at Lucas Oil Stadium
  • Attend best-in-class education sessions, to earn your CEUs or just to up your game.
  • Add in certification classes, workshops, and technical tours
  • Kick back with friends and peers at Industry Appreciation parties, then hit the town and find out why Indy’s food and brewery scenes are attracting national attention.

This immersion can’t be replicated online or at smaller events. The WWETT Show is the only wastewater forum offering this under-one-roof industry experience. Start making plans to join us for WWETT Show 2019, taking place February 20-23, 2019 at the Indiana Convention Center.
