This course is designed to meet 8 hours of the continuing education (CE) requirement for SSTS professional registration. 


A portion of this workshop will be conducted at a field site.  We ask that you bring the following items:

  • Rain gear and boots in case of inclement weather, or sun protection and/or bug spray.

  • Your 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.

  • A spray bottle and any additional soil equipment you would like to use

  • Your own beverages and snacks, if needed. 

  • A chair to sit on.

  • Restrooms may not be available.

Essential information:
To reflect the uncertainty due to COVID, at this time, we ask that every attendee bring a mask or appropriate face covering to class and be prepared to wear it when you are unable to maintain social distancing. In addition, we reserve the right to update our protocols to support the health and safety of our learners, staff, and others at the venues. We will share detailed information about updated requirements as the date of the class approaches.

  • If you are experiencing COVID symptoms, medical-advised quarantine, caring for others, or another COVID-related cause, a full refund will be issued.

  • All cancellations for non-COVID reasons must be received in writing by OSTP staff (septic@umn.edu) 4 business days prior to the workshop. All refunds will be made in the same manner as payment minus a $30 cancellation fee. Classes must be cancelled and rebooked before the start date of the course to avoid forfeiting your entire course fee.

  • If a learner is asked to leave the class due for not complying with requirements for social distancing, facial coverings, or other protocols, the learner will forfeit their entire course fee.

  • In the event that classes are cancelled due to state, local, or University restrictions, a full refund will be issued.
