Equilibrium Environmental will present a full 4-day online SST Version 3.0 certification course in September. It is not mandatory for practitioners who are already certified in a previous version of the tool to retake the full certification course / exam, though it is highly recommended to have taken at least a 2-day update course or audit the full course as a refresher (but with no exam) if certified prior to Version 3.0.
This 4 day course includes over three days of instruction on theory, software tool operation, and case studies, with the exam on the fourth day (four-hour comprehensive exam). Students achieving a passing mark (80%) will obtain AEPA certification and a certificate number registered at AEPA for submitting SST assessments. The course will include instruction on the newest Version 3.0 including the subsoil SAR/sodium module, along with some comparisons to Version 2.5.3 to provide context for the numerous updates/upgrades in Version 3.0.
