Certified Compost Facility Operators
The Compost Council of Canada promotes environmentally responsible and compliant operations, and endeavors to raise the level of professionalism within our industry. Certification of facility operations staff achieves this goal by providing a structured means of increasing and verifying the level of knowledge. Operator certification programs are also used by various provincial governments as part of regulatory approvals and compliance programs.
National Compost Operator Certification Program
The Compost Council of Canada’s National Compost Operator Certification Program is targeted at the certification of facility Operators and Supervisors. Certification of non-operating personnel (e.g. equipment suppliers, consultants, ministry of environment enforcement staff) is not within the scope of the program at this time. However, non-operational personnel are encouraged to take advantage of the training aspects of the certification program as a means of improving their overall knowledge and experience.
