Statewide Uniform Inspection Training (SUIT)

In an effort to standardize landfill inspections across the state of Tennessee, the Division of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) has developed an inspector training program. A landfill operator/employee class is being offered as well. These programs will include the development of inspection specific training modules and policy manuals (e.g. Class I Landfill inspections, Class II landfill inspections, Class III/IV landfill inspections, Permit-by-Rule facility inspections, and others).

Current S.U.I.T. Class Opportunities for Landfill Operators/Employees

The summer round of the Statewide Uniform Inspector Training is designed to provide Class I landfill employees with a basic knowledge of the state facility inspection program. Attendees will learn basic skills to help with landfill inspections and the associated regulations.

If the attendee is a Certified Landfill Operator, this class will provide 8.0 credit hours toward maintaining their certification.

Six separate full day (8-hour) classes will be held this summer. Register online to reserve your spot. If you need to mail a check, please download registration form CN-1493 to register by mail at least one week in advance.
