Part 8 Septic Installers Course

Installers in Ontario are regulated by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH). In order to become a qualified and licensed installer in the province of Ontario the following must be completed:

  • Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing On-site Sewage Systems - 2006 Exam. Participants must register for their own exam at least 21 days before their preferred examination date.
  • Registration as an Installer with the Director of the Building and Development Branch. Registration fee is required.

To prepare for the On-Site Sewage System 2006 Exam the Ontario Rural Wastewater Centre offers a five day course. The course covers Part 8 of the OBC in preparation for the MMAH licensing exam.
