New ways to get the training you need

Webinars


Webinars are an effective way to educate your staff while further reducing the cost of training by eliminating instructor travel expenses. Often, the lead time for arranging this type of training is shorter than a traditional course.

All webinars are recorded and added to IECA's eLearning system within 24 hours of the webinar date. Check out the eLearning system for recorded webinars and other on demand training.

Upcoming Webinars

Biotic Soil Media - Engineering Soils for Sustainable Vegetation - Sponsored by Profile Products

Instructor: Marc S. Theisen, M.S., CPESC, CPSWQ, CESSWI

Date: September 2, 12:00 PM Central Time

PDH: One certificate is issued (to the registered participant), per paid registration.

Pricing: Free for members /$15 for non-members

On challenging and hard to access sites, engineered soils are proving to be a cost-effective topsoil alternative. By testing existing soil and selecting the right growing media, it is possible to increase the biological activity and add necessary organic materials for biotic components to thrive in. Creating and developing these micro ecosystems is now feasible where topsoil, compost and other sources of organic matter were formerly the standards.

Got Stormwater Compliance issues? What now?

Instructor: Gerald R. (Jerry) Montgomery, CPESC, CESSWI, CPSWQ, QSD/P, Tor, QISP, IToR, Compliance Group Leader and Scott Berkebile, PE, CFM, QSD/P

Scott has more than 14 years of experience working on water resources and water quality projects. He manages water-related projects including Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs), Storm Water Management Plans (SWMPs), Water Quality Technical Reports, drainage master plans, levee analyses/certifications, and storm drain collection system designs. He has performed site inspections to monitor the Best Management Practices specified in the SWPPP. He has extensive experience implementing storm water permits and has experience working with the state and regional water boards. Scott was an active participant in the County of San Diego's Drainage Protocol Workgroup

Date: September 16, 12:00 PM Central Time

PDH: One certificate is issued (to the registered participant), per paid registration.

Level: All

Pricing: $50 for members /$65 for non-members

Learning Objectives:

  • Components needed for successful program
  • Penalties for non-compliance
  • How to react to Notice of Violations and Fines
  • How to seek expert assistance
  • Spreading the word about your positive program

Are you constantly left with a headache after receiving another violation and/or fine from the Regional Water Quality Control Board? Is your stormwater program lacking efficiency and accountability? Let us walk you through how we have successfully built and managed stormwater compliance programs across California, and outline principals that can be applied across the country. We'll outline the critical components required for an efficient and compliant program, including how to tackle violations and hefty fines if they come knocking on your door.

How to Make your Hydraulic Mulch Work Harder for You - Sponsored by Tensar

Instructor: Jill Pack, CPESC

Date: October 7, 12:00 PM Central Time

PDH: One certificate is issued (to the registered participant), per paid registration.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the basic components of hydraulic mulch products and how these components can work together to build effective hydraulic erosion control products (HECPs)
  • How to properly mix and apply hydraulic erosion control products to increase the efficiency of your projects
  • Understand when and how to select hydraulic erosion control products for different applications based on the physical and the performance properties of HECPs

Pricing: Free for members /$15 for non-members

Join us to learn how to properly apply your hydraulic mulch products to achieve the most effective erosion control. We will discuss how to analyze the basic components of hydraulic mulch to ensure that you get the most from your HECP applications. Discover what physical and performance properties to look for when selecting products for different erosion applications. We know you work hard so make sure your hydraulic mulch works harder for you.

"It's a Bird, it's a Plane, it's a Drone!": The Future of Erosion and Sediment Control Site Inspections

Instructor: Michael (Mike) Perez, EI

Date: October 21, 12:00 PM Central Time

PDH: One certificate is issued (to the registered participant), per paid registration.

Pricing: $50 for members /$65 for non-members

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain insight on the role unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have in assisting in various inspection applications.
  • Learn about preliminary findings in UAV erosion and sediment control inspections and field assessments.
  • Attain an understanding of current regulations on the use of UAVs for commercial applications.
  • Exposure to current UAV research being performed by Auburn University.

This webinar will showcase current ongoing research focused on using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for conducting site inspections applications. The study, being conducted by Auburn University researchers, focuses on erosion and sediment control applications in construction. Participants will be exposed to UAV technologies to develop: project progression documentation, photogrammetric site visualization, highly detailed digital elevation models, and assessment of vegetation and crop health. Developed inspection methods, case study site assessments, and preliminary research findings and results will be discussed. The webinar will cover topics geared towards conducting inspections for construction, infrastructure, environmental, and agricultural applications.
