NOWRA’s Learning Academy makes it easier for you to obtain high quality onsite wastewater training by bringing the classes to you! It’s a great option for industry professionals and regulators when:
  • You are unable to attend in-person training events due to work, distance, or time
  • You want to train new employees quickly

  • You need to better understand onsite wastewater fundamentals

NOWRA’s Learning Academy Courses have been developed and extensively reviewed by some of the most respected industry professionals from academia, engineering, soil science and contracting sectors. Each course offers a dynamic mix of classroom lectures, external videos and required readings, along with periodic tests of your knowledge. When you pass a course, you get a personalized Certificate of Completion which can be used as continuing education documentation.
