New Webinars Offered for Erosion and Storm Water Professionals

The International Erosion Control Association (IECA) now offers a complete line-up of webinars to meet a wide range of training needs.

“People are busy. We’ve found more and more, people don’t have the time or the budget to travel for training,” said Kim M. Kline, technical resource director for IECA. “But with today’s regulatory climate, professionals need to stay informed of the issues and new techniques. We think webinars are the solution.”

The hour-long sessions address topics ranging from water harvesting to low impact development and illicit discharge detection programs. Some topics such as storm water BMP maintenance and storm water pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) assessment, inspection and maintenance are conducted as a multipart series to give participants a more in-depth look at the subject.

Later this fall IECA will partner with CPESC, Inc. to provide review courses and training for individuals looking to become Certified Professionals in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC) or Certified Professionals in Storm Water Quality (CPSWQ).

One-hour sessions are $65.00, with discounts given to IECA members. Each session will earn a participant 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH) or .1 Continuing Education Credit (CEU). All webinar material is peer reviewed to assure quality and accuracy.

“IECA prides itself on the quality of education we provide, these webinars are no exception,” said Kline.
