This hybrid online class will combine both live instruction and independent online work that you will complete during the day.  Independent work will include quizzes, readings, videos and short assignments.  Access to a computer with a webcam (either a camera that is built into your laptop or one that connects via USB), a reliable internet connection and a workspace that is free from distraction and noise will set you up for success. 

This class will provide students with an understanding about the requirements for erosion and sediment control for construction. Students will learn about the various types of erosion and how to select and install best management practices to prevent erosion and control sediment on job-sites. The course will also cover Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SW3P) including the requirements needed to obtain a permit, routine inspection checklists, and proper maintenance necessary to ensure your Best Management Practices (BMPs) remain effective. This interactive workshop combines discussion, case studies and group exercises to reinforce the training.
