To help fulfill the credentialing and continuing education training needs of onsite wastewater contractors and county health department field staff, the Department of Health staff provide and support training at various locations across the state.
Much of this training takes place at the Florida Onsite Wastewater Association's Training Center in Polk City, Florida. Local contractors and wastewater professionals played a key role in starting the training center by donating time and resources to the construction of the site, and the center continues to be funded in part through a portion of the repair permit fees.
