This hybrid workshop couples synchronous online education within in-person field training to meet the 6 credits of soils-specific MPCA continuing education required for SSTS designers and inspectors.


The scheduling for the hybrid workshops is different from any workshop OSTP has done to date.

  • Each field date has an online Zoom lecture scheduled for the Friday morning, 8 - Noon before the workshop. Make sure this also fits your schedule.

  • The Friday morning Zoom lecture is equivalent to 3 Continuing Education Hours, accredited by the MPCA. Please read below to make sure that you have the proper computer equipment to complete the online portion.

The following items are required for online participation:

  • An internet connection (broadband wired or wireless, with 600kbps down);

  • A computer/device with speakers (built-in or plug-in, or wireless Bluetooth);

  • A webcam  (either built-in to the computer/device, or plug-in);

  • A valid picture ID

A portion of this workshop will be conducted at a field site - please be prepared to stand for long periods of time or bring your own accommodations (We recommend that you bring a chair to sit on).

Bring rain gear and boots in case of inclement weather, or sun protection and/or bug spray.
Bring a Munsell Color Book and Sand Card (if you have one), if you need to purchase one, they will be available for you at the workshop.
