Description

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 (BMPs) to prevent erosion and control sediment on job-sites. The course will also address routine inspection checklists, and proper maintenance necessary to ensure your BMPs remain effective. The course concludes with Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan Development. Where we will address key elements of a SWPPP, rolls and responsibilities, and Erosion and Sediment Control Plan Development.
