Title 5 Certification: Classes and Exams

On behalf of MassDEP, we offer System Inspector and Soil Evaluator certification classes.

System Inspector Certification TrainingSpring 2022 is scheduled for May 13 & 16, 2022 and is now full.  

Soil Evaluator Certification Training –  Spring 2022 is scheduled to start April 5, 2022 and is now full.

Due to the COVID pandemic we were not able to have our soil classes in spring/fall 2020 and spring 2021.  There is a backlog of people looking to get into this class.  We ask for your continued patience as we continue making up classes.  We are planning the fall 2022 class as well, but do not have any information on that yet.  

System Inspector Certification Training

The in-person Title 5 System Inspector certification course consists of a full day of classroom training, followed by a 2-hour multiple choice exam a week later. The virtual Title 5 System Inspector certification course consists of two half-day webinars, followed by the exam in-person. NEIWPCC usually offers this course at least twice a year, usually in the Spring and Fall, and in various areas of the state.

Courses/Exams:

The next Title 5 System Inspector certification class will be held in the spring of 2022.  This class is now full.

If you would like to be put on the notification list for the next available class in the fall, please email us at title5@neiwpcc.org.

Note: NEIWPCC reserves the right to postpone or reschedule any course due to insufficient registration or inclement weather conditions.

Please note that Massachusetts Registered Professional Engineers (civil, sanitary or environmental), Massachusetts Registered Sanitarians and Certified Health Officers are pre-approved and do not need to take the class or exam.  Pre-approved candidates need to fill out a System Inspector Application form, and submit it to our office along with proof of eligibility and payment ($100) to get registered and receive credentials.  Only those candidates who are pre-approved can fill out this application.  All others need to use the eligibility form that will be posted with the class registration packet – when a class is booked.


Soil Evaluator Certification Training

The Title 5 Soil Evaluator certification class is an 8-week course (one session per week) that includes three classroom sessions, three field sessions, a written exam and a field exam.

The spring Soil Evaluator certification class begins April 5, 2022.  This class is now fully booked.  There will be a class in the fall.

The classroom sessions are conducted in one location, while the field sessions are conducted in different areas of the state in order to expose students to various soil types and conditions within the state.  NEIWPCC offers this program twice a year, in the spring and fall.

Due to the COVID pandemic we were not able to have our soil classes in spring/fall 2020 and spring 2021.  Although we held a class in the fall of 2021, there is still a backlog of people looking to get into this class.  We ask for your continued patience as we continue making up classes.
