Course Number: V18M



Erosion and Sediment Control: Sediment Control: this module covers the process of sediment transport and deposition and various strategies to control sediment transport on construction sites.  Course participants will: (1) gain an understanding of the sedimentation process and the influencing factors; (2) become knowledgeable on typical sediment control practices used in construction and their limitations; and (3) understand the installation and maintenance requirements of typical sediment control practices.

This is the third course/module in the series certificate: Design Fundamentals of Erosion & Sediment Control Measures for Construction Activities- 6 courses, 6 hours, .6 CEUs

This online series certificate is a comprehensive overview of the rules and regulations that govern construction projects regarding stormwater pollution prevention, the erosion and sediment processes, design of control practices, and technology applications for the construction industry.  This series is intended for participants generally familiar with erosion and sediment control concepts who want to increase their knowledge level within the construction industry to advance their professional careers.  Six courses/modules make up the entire series, which include review questions at the conclusion of each module intended to reinforce presented material.

The learning objectives for this online series certificate are to:

  1. gain an understanding of federal erosion and sediment control regulations and how they apply to state and local municipalities that establish expectations of site operators in the erosion and sediment control industry;
  2. provide a review of typical erosion and sediment control practices and learn effective site planning, installation, and inspection strategies;
  3. attain an overview of hydrological analysis and soil loss models; and
  4. learn site assessment strategies for developing stormwater pollution prevention plans (SWPPPs).

Participants of this series of courses are expected to obtain an in-depth overview of erosion and sediment control regulations and design applications. 

These courses may be taken individually.  In order to receive the series certificate all courses must be taken within two years from the date of purchase of the first course.  Individual course CEUs are issued upon course completion.
