Course Description

The OSSF – Designated Representative course not only prepares local government personnel to enforce TCEQ OSSF rules and regulations in coordination with the commission, participants also receive information specific to the proper design, construction, and operation of multiple on-site sewage disposal systems along with best practices linked to the proper response to complaint calls. Once students successfully complete the course, they may apply directly with TCEQ to take the licensing examination at either a TCEQ Regional Office or at an approved Computer Based Testing (CBT) Center.  

Special Note: Beginning September 1, 2020 TEEX will no longer administer the OSSF Designated Representative  paper-based exam.  After September 1, 2020 the Designated Representative exam will be available through CBT – see WWW901 for more details.
