Continuing Education for Septic Tank Professionals
The Wisconsin On-Site Water Recycling Association and Wisconsin Liquid Waste Carries Association both involved in the septic tank business, had their joint Winter Conference education once again in Stevens Point, WI at the Holiday Inn Convention Center. The training was exceptional! Topics included Search Engine Optimization for our web sites, cash flow analysis, business taxes, and contract language on day one. Day 2 education included topics on septage land application sites, cost of doing business, maintenance and emissions for our trucks, DOT update, installation keys for long-term septic system performance, nutrient management plans for septage applied to farm fields, affordable health care act, weight limits, POWTS evaluator overview, and the keynote by Secretary Dave Ross of DSPS. Day three education included high strength waste treatment, OSHA compliance, Land spreading soil conditions, pumps, concrete tanks, and the future of on-site waste water treatment. Continuing education is extremely important for septic service providers. Most customers do not realize how much their pumper or installer must know to give quality service.
