Basic and Advanced Erosion Control Practices: Thursday, February 9, 2023 from 8am-4pm in South Paris, ME

This course is necessary to become a Contractor Certified in Erosion and Sedimentation Control Practices by the Department. In this 8-hour course, participants will learn why erosion control practices are important, be exposed to the principles of erosion and sedimentation, learn how to properly install and maintain Erosion & Sedimentation Control (‘ESC’) Best Management Practices (BMPs), regulations requiring ESC, using the Departments Permit By Rule process, and ESC planning. Participants are provided with information on the proper selection, installation and maintenance of ESC practices using Maine DEPs Erosion and Sediment Control Practices Field Guide for Contractors.

The course is of primary interest to contractors but could also be helpful to municipal code enforcement officers, consultants, engineers and public works employees. Courses can be tailored to either an audience of primarily contractors or for inspectors and municipal officials.

This class qualifies for 6 Continuing Education Hours (CEH) for individuals Certified in Erosion Control Practices by Maine DEP. Each CEH affords Certified individuals one year of recertification. This class is approved for 4 Credits for Certified Tank Installers by the Board of Underground Storage Tank Installers, January 2022.

Lunch, snacks, and coffee will be provided!
