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

Lessons Learned from 46,000 ESC Inspections

Instructor: Jeff Mazanec, PE

Date: March 16, 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:

  • Compare inspection pass/ fail rates for residential, commercial, large grading and municipal project types.
  • Compare relative impact of specific BMP selections based on analysis of their frequency of failure on different types of construction sites.
  • Evaluate effectiveness of self-inspections based on comparison of "Pass" rates for agency inspections (MS4 staff) to self-inspections (by contractors or others designated by permit holders

Every day, 1,000's of construction site erosion and sediment control inspections are recorded by public and private inspectors across the country. Wouldn't it be helpful to compile and analyze the results of those inspections? This discussion summarizes analysis of inspection data recorded in over 46,000 construction site erosion and sediment control inspections on residential, commercial, municipal and large grading projects over a period of more than eight years.

IECA Vendor Webinar: Maximizing Project Success with Site Design Software - Presented by Profile Products

Instructor: Matt Welch, CESSWI

Date: April 6, 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

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the fundamentals to successful erosion control and site revegetation.
  • Discuss which site parameters can be addressed using online software.
  • Develop an understanding of the calculations for various design parameters.
  • Learn about various design programs that are available to for free.

With the countless technological advances we have seen in the past decade, it only makes sense that our erosion control and revegetation efforts join the trend. By utilizing software to take an in-depth look at all aspects that can affect site closure, assist in developing and planning your erosion control and revegetation efforts all while having the ability to organize and store your project data. By utilizing these tools it is possible to create a plan that reduces risk and maximizes success.

Hydromodification - Causes, Effects, and Mitigation

Instructor: Dr. Andrew Earles, P.E., CPESC, D.WRE

Date: April 20, 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:

  • Understand root causes of hydromodification of streams.
  • Learn ways to monitor and quantify hyrdomodification effects related to erosion and deposition.
  • Gain knowledge of physical and hydrologic principles of in-stream and upland mitigation measures.

As professionals in erosion and sediment control we are often focused on on-site erosion and sediment controls. When considering changes in runoff rates and volumes, however, it is essential to look downstream of the site to understand how changes in hydrology may adversely affect downstream receiving waters from the standpoints of degradation, aggradation, and aquatic habitat. This presentation will focus on the causes and effects of hydromodification, the roles of peak flow rates and runoff/streamflow volume, and the fundamentals of mitigating these effects. The presentation will provide examples of strategies to mitigate impacts of hydromodofication including the importance of stormwater volume reduction, control of frequently occurring events that form channels, and bed and bank stabilization.
