Certification Class

If you have questions concerning the class or training hours, please contact the Waste Management Program at or at 573-522-3338.

Current certification holders must earn 10 hours of approved training prior to the expiration date. Options of courses to attend are:

  • The Solid Waste Technician Certification Course presented by the department. The class meets twice a year for the number of hours required for recertification.
  • Courses or trainings in the solid waste field. Submit documentation to the department's Waste Management Program at or at 573-751-5401.
  • Attending educational sessions on solid waste-related topics at the annual Missouri Waste Control Coalition Conference.

Regardless of which method you choose to acquire recertification credit hours, you must accrue at least 10 hours of classes or training prior to the expiration of your three-year certificate to become recertified. The Department's Waste Management Program must approve training or class subjects in order for you to apply them toward recertification.
