Florida Stormwater Inspector Training Online

This program offers classes that follow the curriculum provided in the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Florida Stormwater, Erosion and Sedimentation Control Inspector’s Manual. Florida’s stormwater program is technology-based, using performance standards and Best Management Practice (BMP) design criteria.

The FDEP encourages inspectors to use innovative techniques and specifically designed erosion control systems in order to prevent or limit erosion and sedimentation problems during and after land disturbance and construction activities. Our two-day FSESCI training program includes Tier I and Tier II classes for installers and inspectors.

Course Details — Which Course Should You Take?

Day 1: Tier I (Installer): This course provides an introduction to stormwater and erosion and sedimentation control, teaching BMP installers and operators how to properly select, install, and maintain BMPs. This class is a prerequisite to the Tier II class.
Day 2: Tier II (Inspector): This course provides additional details on information introduced in the Tier I class and trains BMP inspectors on the applicable regulations, inspection forms, and enforcement procedures necessary for proper inspection of BMPs.
