The MPCA is planning to make a minor amendment to Minn. R. pt. 7048.1000 to reduce the number of training hours required to renew a Type IV operator certificate.
Operators of facilities where sewage sludge and industrial wastes are applied to the land for treatment and disposal (Type IV facilities) are required to be trained and certified by the MPCA. (Minn. R. ch. 7048) After completing initial training, operators must currently receive nine hours of additional training every three years to maintain their certification. In this rulemaking the MPCA is proposing to reduce the required re-certification training hours from nine to six hours.
