    This Video Course is intended to provide the SWPPP Practitioner, Inspector, Regulator, Construction Staff and/or others an opportunity to learn and experience what is necessary to install and complete a BMP installation inspection.  Generally speaking, it might take months or years of work in erosion and sediment control for the BMP practitioner, the regulator, or the SWPPP designer to obtain sufficient field experiences to gain a “working knowledge of proper BMP installation”.

    Along with the Video Course, the attendees will also receive the Shasta Collage BMP Manual as a download, and testing.

    The Videos (7 modules/Lectures) plus Introduction) runtime is about 5h:40min. The attendee will have to refer to the Manual and read info from it and the student will need to take the test. We are estimating 8-10 hours are required to take the entire course and complete the testing. The Video runtimes total of approximately 4h:45m. The study of reference materials will require another 20% of video time or +2.0 hrs. Test-taking requirements will round the course out to 8 hours = 1.0 CEU
