NHDES has cancelled all in-person training for the remainder of 2020 to protect the health and safety of attendees as well as NHDES Staff. The Solid Waste Operator Training Program is providing online training for operators including Basic Training sessions. Operators may participate in the class in groups. However, all attendees must register under their own email address and log-in on the day of training, even if for only a few minutes. The test at the end is tied to each individual's email address.

Basic Training will begin promptly at 8:30 AM; operators are strongly encouraged to arrive no later than 8:15 am to sign in. Testing begins around 2:30 PM. There will be breaks allotted throughout the day including a 30 minute lunch break.


Applicants are required to register for and attend one of the scheduled sessions pursuant to RSA 149-M. Operators will receive a registration link upon submittal of Initial Application. Please view this document for instructions for registering and logging in to the online SWOT Basic Training.

Solid waste facility operators who don't have Processed Applicant status must submit an initial application and $50 fee within 30 days of employment at a NH permitted solid waste facility. If you have any questions, please contact us.
