Individuals seeking MOLO certification should note that taking the new MOLO course does NOT guarantee success on the exam. Passing a certification exam requires amassing knowledge, skills, and abilities over time from a variety of sources; no one course provides all of the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to pass a certification exam. Knowledge is gained over time from years of experience in the field; online courses, webinars, and podcasts; in-person seminars and events; hands-on workshops; on-the-job training; local, regional, and national conferences; mentoring programs; trade publications; and more. Thus, the MOLO course should be considered as just one resource that can be used to help prepare for MOLO certification. Those who wish to sit for the MOLO Certification exam should self-assess and fill knowledge and skill gaps by reviewing the new MOLO Body of Knowledge found at swana.org/MOLO.
The course will be presented as a live, in-person learning event led by a SWANA-certified faculty instructor.
You will receive a copy of the comprehensive Manager of Landfill Operations student manual. This manual is a must-have job reference tool that includes the 13 modules listed above and supplemental images, graphs, and real-world examples for effective landfill management.
Continuing Education Credit
Upon completion of the course, SWANA awards participants 30 continuing education credits to apply toward a current SWANA certification.
Who should attend?
