Septic & Well Inspection Training

I’m looking to add septic and well inspections. I can’t seem to find the necessary training. Where can I get it?

Someone suggested Joe Farsetta but I called and e-mailed him many times over two months and I can’t make it happen. Others have explained the high liability involved in septic inspections, but my competition is doing it so I feel I need to offer the same services.

Hello David,

Here are some links you might want to look into for septic training.

Pennsylvania as a whole does not have regulations for well inspections. There are several counties though that have their own guidlines and must be tested by a licensed well driller. Check into the area that you will be working and see what the city and county laws are pertaining to well inspections and sampling.


Excellent information, I just want to add, I’ve heard that ESA ( ) has a small/basic course. BTW, you mention well water, but do you know if there is any Pa state requirements for septic?

Thank you,

Also the National Onsight Residential Wastewater Association will have some information on classes. I am member of NOWRA. A decent organization. I think The “R” means residentail, not sure.
