Time of Transfer Workshop

Schedule of workshops

Good Afternoon Onsite Army, I have a special request pertaining to our newest class! (TOT Inspectors, Installers, Septic Maintenance Providers, Regulators, Home Owners, Realtors and Bankers) We have put together a brand new 6 hour class that is part lecture and part interactive problem solving event.  The “round table” exercises will be more effective if we have all of our industry stakeholders involved and at the table with us.  If you know of a Realtor, Lender or Homeowner that could benefit from a grassroots, ground up explanation of Time of Transfer and Chapter 69 please invite them to participate in one of our new Time of Transfer workshops.  This class specifically is designed to bring all parties involved with Time of Transfer together for a shared educational experience with the goal to shed light on everyone’s individual roll in the process.  Hopefully, by the end of the day we will have a better appreciation for each other’s responsibilities and the rolls we all play within the Time of Transfer process.


Feel free to share this email  and attachment with anyone you think could benefit from this opportunity.


Thank you and have a great day!  See you in class,


Craig J. Hennager

Illinois Online Well Classes


The new Private Well Class will provide information about private water supplies through the use of class modules that will be emailed to the subscribers.  This will allow the individual to participate at their own pace.   Those who participate in the class will have access to the tools a well owner needs to ensure a safe water supply and help extend the life of their well.  Participants will gain an understanding of the basic science of water wells and the benefits of using best practices to maintain and protect their water supply.

The following topics will be covered in the ten part email course:

  • understanding how groundwater moves and gets into your well
  • how water gets from your well to your faucet
  • basics of well construction and the type of well you have
  • how groundwater and wells get contaminated
  • common operations issues for well owners
  • how to care for and maintain your well, pump, and infrastructure
  • testing your well water and ensuring water is safe to drink
  • understanding test results and fixing water quality problems
  • understanding regulations that affect you
  • what to do in an emergency or equipment failure
  • where to find help and get questions answered locally

The lessons provided through emails will be reinforced by the use of monthly webinars which the participants can attend as often they wish -  even after the emailed class materials have ended.  There will also be opportunities to ask questions and be given additional information in the well related topics that interest you.  To find out more about how the classes will work, click here.
