Wisconsin Sedimentation & Erosion Control Inspector (WISECI)TM Best Management Practices

Learn techniques to establish stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) for your construction site, and eliminate problems before they cause higher costs and slowdowns for your project. Save time and money by avoiding erosion and sediment releases. Learn about proper installation and maintenance of typical BMPs as well as proper documentation to help keep your project in compliance with local and state regulations.

This course can be applied to the Water Technology Certificate.

Who Should Attend

Inspectors, contractors, foremen, project managers, consultants, stormwater managers and owners of construction site projects and related activities (grading, culvert replacements, utility trenching, etc.)

Benefits and Learning Outcomes

  • Develop expertise in site inspection and reporting
  • Assess erosion and sedimentation releases
