Enrol in Part 8: On-site Sewage Systems

Course Code: ENVR042

This overview course largely deals with the requirements related to the on-site sewage systems regulated under the Ontario Building Code (systems with a design capacity of 10,000 litres per day or less). The requirements related to these systems are found primarily in Part 8 of the Code. This course supports building practitioners wishing to write the MMA On-Site Sewage Systems qualification examination and covers various topics including general requirements (wastewater characteristics, design flows, clearances, site conditions, etc.), the design and construction requirements related to each of the five classes of sewage systems, operation and maintenance, and more. The course is also considered as an overview/refresher for those who want to improve their knowledge of on-site sewage systems. Included in the course fee you will receive a copy of the On-site Sewage Systems 2012 manual. Students are required to bring the 2012 Building Code Compendium 2 Volume set, with them to the first class. Building Code Examinations: An individual must successfully complete the examination program related to their area of practice to become qualified. Building Code examinations are delivered by Humber College on-line and in test centres across the province. Apply through Humber College to write a Building Code examination: Humber is responsible for Building Code examination registration and hosting. Anyone writing a Building Code examination for the first time will require a BCIN number in order to register for an examination with Humber College. You can obtain your BCIN number by following the links on the Building Code website, Qualifications and Registration page.
