Onsite Wastewater Registration Program

Special Certification (Technical Specialist programs) recognizes individuals who have reached a certain level of expertise within a defined area. Special Certification does not, at this time, grant membership in ASTTBC and is not part of the regular certification program for technologists and technicians. Special Certification has been developed in conjunction with appropriate industry, government, education, and other interested groups.

Special Certification represents an important vehicle whereby ASTTBC can recognize specialty areas, either as a form of ‘endorsement’ to ASTTBC certification as an AScT, CTech, Associate or as a separate, distinct ‘Technical Specialist’.

A Registered Onsite Wastewater Practitioner (ROWP), or ‘Authorized Person’, plans, installs and maintains onsite wastewater systems.  The Registration process for ROWPs is the responsibility of the Applied Science Technologists & Technicians of BC (ASTTBC).
