Vermont Compost Operator Certification Training

Due to the continued challenge of planning large in-person gatherings, we will again be offering a fully remote version of the Vermont Compost Operator Certification Training in winter 2022. Hosted by Compost Technical Services, and presented by the VT Agency of Natural Resources (ANR), this workshop will provide participants with a Compost Operator Certificate, which meets the requirements of ANR for small, medium and large compost facility site operators. Current or future compost site operators will be certified to manage composting facilities handling food scraps or animal mortalities in Vermont. The training is a combination of pre-recorded presentations, review tests, and live webinars. The course is limited to Vermont residents and site operators working in the state and costs $30.

Topics Covered Include:

  • Principles of Composting
  • Compost Recipe Development
  • Materials (Feedstocks) & Blending
  • Pile Construction
  • Pile Monitoring & Management
  • Trouble Shooting & Neighbor Relations
  • Storm Water & Leachate Management
  • Site & Operating Permit Requirements
