Abstract: Health officials in 88 counties and environmental engineers in five districts issue permits for onsite wastewater treatment systems throughout Ohio. Educating this large and diverse
audience about advances in onsite wastewater treatment is a challenge. A detailed audience and
needs analysis is being conducted to learn more about preferred learning styles and what regulators need-to-know. Field instruction at the OSU Soil Environment Technology Learning Lab, annual conferences and workshops are evaluated to measure learning through pre/post tests. By comparing evaluation results from educational programs for system designers, installers, and regulators, regulators appear to be the most challenging group showing the lowest level of learning through pre/post testing.
