This course is necessary to become a Contractor Certified in Erosion and Sedimentation Control Practices by the Department. In this 8-hour course, participants will learn why erosion control practices are important, be exposed to the principles of erosion and sedimentation, learn how to properly install and maintain Erosion & Sedimentation Control ('ESC') Best Management Practices (BMPs), regulations requiring ESC, using the Departments Permit By Rule process, in-water work procedures, and ESC planning. Participants are provided with information on the proper selection, installation and maintenance of ESC practices using Maine DEPs Erosion and Sediment Control Practices Field Guide for Contractors.

The course is of primary interest to contractors but could also be helpful to municipal code enforcement officers, consultants, engineers and public works employees.
