Exam Preparation for Registered Candidates -  In 2020, workshops will be offered through Vermont Technical College (VTC) to help candidates prepare for all three Designer Exams (Class A, Class B, and ClassBW). These will inform candidates of the exam format, the type of questions, and the expected level of detail in their answers. Example questions and answers will be presented. These workshops are not intended to provide comprehensive training.  You will be expected to independently familiarize yourself with the Rules and the principles of wastewater system design. Details of soil training classes can be found on the Continuing Education page. Please note that no walk-ins will be accepted at these workshops.  They are intended for registered candidates only.
