Certification for Septic Inspections (FL)

(Zachary Nolen) #1

What are the actual requirements in the state of Florida to perform septic inspections? Does our HI license allow us to perform tank certifications? Do we need a septic contracting license or is there some ancillary certification we can get to perform them. I usually schedule a septic inspection with a licensed company but I want to know how I can get into performing them myself. I understand that you can “inspect a septic system” but I want to be able to provide a tank certification for VA, FHA, etc.

You cannot inspect a septic system in Florida without the proper license.

What is the proper license? No one seems to have this answer.
