Iowa Certified Construction Site Pollution Prevention Inspector (ICCSPPI)


ISWEP has provided construction site inspector training for several years.  To meet the demands of construction site inspectors in this ever-changing field the first certification program in Iowa was developed in partnership with Polk Soil and Water ConservationNilles Associates, Inc., and Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship.   The Iowa Certified Construction Site Pollution Prevention Inspector (ICCSPPI) program offers an affordable, time efficient,  certification opportunity for construction site inspectors who are responsible for construction site or MS-4 inspections.   The program is developed especially for Iowa inspectors based on Iowa design guidelines and regulatory requirements.  Topics covered during the training event include:  regulatory requirements; erosion, sediment and velocity control; post construction stormwater management practices for water quality and quantity management; SWPPP essentials; and inspector requirements.  A practice inspection is conducted during class.  Sample inspection forms are provided to attendees.

ICCSPPI Requirements

  • Attend a full day ICCSPPI training event.
  • Pass an end-of-day exam (typically takes 30 minutes or less).
  • Sign a Code of Ethics Agreement.

A certificate recognizing you as an ICCSPPI is issued to those that fulfill the above requirements and is good for 3 years, after which recertification training is required.  As part of certification, your name and contact information is added to a statewide database of Certified Inspectors.  Training events will be held throughout the state or arrangements can be made to connect to a pre-recorded webcast.  Contact Pat Sauer at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
