PSMA/NOF 101 Basic Inspection Course - Clinton NJ (July 10-11, 2018)

Which Course is Right For You?

All new inspection trainees must take PSMA/NOF-101. If you are certified but have only limited field experience, and need to brush up on the very basic concepts, PSMA/NOF-101 is the right choice to meet your beginner needs. Because PSMA/NOF-101 is for beginners, trainees are limited to two consecutive attendances.

If you are certified and use or have used the Standards at times in the past, the PSMA/NOF-102 is more appropriate.

Your company must be a member of PSMA in order for you to register for this training event.  You can join online today by completing a membership application at  

101 Basic Onlot Wastewater Systems Inspection Certification

This two-day beginner’s course covers the PSMA/NOF Inspection Standards. Subjects covered include: system permitting and operations history, basic system components, the basics to locating systems, basics to recognizing problems, analysis of inspection results and evaluation report writing.  A full course outline can viewed online on the PSMA website by clicking here.

Individuals who complete the course work and achieve a passing grade on the post-training exam become 101 certified. PSMA-NOF Inspection Standards can then be used under a limited license agreement.

Please Note: The skills of reading and writing are required prerequisites for training and for all candidates who will take the PSMA/NOF certification exam. PSMA/NOF-certified inspectors must be able to follow written instructions, record field measurements, write answers to questions and draw conclusions. Trainees must be able to complete the training and the exam without reading or writing assistance. Persons with disabilities should notify the PSMA Office in advance of the session, and reasonable accommodations will be made to assist in facilitating your participation.

All trainees should bring materials to take notes. A calculator will be beneficial.  If you have inspection tools such as probe rods, flashlight, mirror, tape measure and gloves, please bring them. Both 101 and 102 include a field trip to nearby onlot systems with hands-on application of inspection skills. The field activity on Day 2 operates rain or shine. Dress appropriately for field conditions; bring a change of shoes.
