ERCC 16 hour Course

This comprehensive 16-hour training class objective is to give the participant a knowledge base on storm water pollution, regulations and best management practices (BMPs). The course will include potential storm water pollution sources and effects associated with construction activity.

The appropriate methods of erosion and sedimentation control will be presented as well as use of BMPs to control erosion and sedimentation pollutants discharged into waterways.  Post construction BMPs, inspection techniques and a checklist for inspections will be reviewed.  The class will conduct a mock inspection exercise and fill out the inspection forms using photo images to represent field conditions.  Maintenance of the BMPs along with a section on storm water monitoring for construction sites within a ¼ mile of a unique / impaired waterway will also be presented.

The ADOT guidance manual for Erosion Pollution and Control will be used along with course handouts.

Certificates will be issued at the end of the class.  These certificates along with your experience must be submitted to ADOT and approved in order to be listed as the Erosion Control Coordinator on the project.
