Individuals become approved Soil Evaluators or System Inspectors by taking a designated class and passing a written examination. The New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission administers classes and examinations on behalf of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. For information about upcoming classes you can:
- Email the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (training@NEIWPCC.org) and write "MA Title 5 training" in the subject line;
- View their website directly where they advertise the trainings; or
- Contact NEIWPCC at:
650 Suffolk Street, Suite 410
Lowell, MA 01854
When NEIWPCC schedules training sessions, they will notify people already on the waiting list.
You will need to supply proof that you qualify to take the classes. See "Proofs of Qualification for System Inspector Classes", below.
Massachusetts Professional Engineers (PEs) with a concentration in civil, sanitary or environmental engineering automatically qualify as System Inspectors under Title 5. However, they must provide documentation of their status to NEIWPCC, e.g., a photocopy of their license. Send proof to NEIWPCC at the address above.
