Successful completion of a one-day basic sediment and erosion control class, i.e. AGC Basic Stormwater & Erosion Control class or the CDOT Stormwater Certification class.
This training course has been designed to go beyond simply informing participants of their obligations under the Stormwater Construction General Permit (CGP). The course and online training site provides participants with proven tools and resources as well as the Uniform Stormwater Management System (USMS) that, when properly implemented, will result in full permit compliance on the jobsite. The standardized inspection approach taught in this class can also be utilized by anyone responsible for conducting thorough CGP site inspections and audits. The one-day class is focused on using the USMS and associated forms and tools to meet the requirements of the CGP and local municipal (MS4) permit requirements. A summary is presented at the end of the day outlining how to successfully implement the USMS standardized systems and tools upon return to your project. At the end of the course, a test will be administered and a certificate will be issued upon successful completion. Participants will also be given access to the online USMS training and resource site where all information and materials covered in the course, as well as other useful compliance resources, can be found.
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Explain the CGSP framework and compliance requirements
Quickly locate all necessary compliance resources quickly in the AGC/C online consolidated resource list
Utilize the standardized Site Documentation Checklists available
Implement an effective, standardized stormwater compliance program using the AGC/C systems and tools
Perform and properly document thorough site inspections and corrective actions
Evaluate and implement cost-effective BMPs appropriate for varying site conditions
Maintain all CGP-required compliance records
Train others in the use of the Standardized Compliance Approach
