Introduction & Installation

Introduction to Onsite Systems and Installing Onsite Systems are foundational to many SSTS certifications. 

The online workshops do NOT include the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) certification exams. The MPCA certification exams will still need to be taken at a later date. We will inform you of testing dates as they are scheduled. More information about Covid-19 impacts to testing, certification and licensing can be found on the MPCA website. You can also contact the MPCA at 651-757-2202 and ssts-info.pca@state.mn.us.

If you need assistance to accommodate a disability, you may request an accommodation at any time, please contact us at (800) 322-8642 or septic@umn.edu
