ISWEP has offered training for construction site inspectors for several years now.Â This effort has expanded to meet the demands of construction site inspectors in this ever-changing field and now culminates in the first ever certification program in Iowa in partnership withÂ Polk Soil and Water Conservation,Â Nilles Associates, Inc., Â andÂ Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship.Â Â The Iowa Certified Construction Site Pollution Prevention Inspector (ICCSPPI) program offers an affordable, time efficient,Â certification opportunity for construction site inspectors who are responsible for construction site or MS-4 inspections and MS-4 inspections.Â Â The program is developed especially for Iowa inspectors based on Iowa design guidelines and regulatory requirements.
The following short steps are needed to become an ICCSPPI:
Topics covered during the training event include:Â regulatory requirements; erosion, sediment and velocity control; post construction stormwater management practices for water quality and quantity management; SWPPP essentials; and inspector requirements.Â A practice inspection is conducted during class.Â Sample inspection forms are provided to attendees.
Training events will be held throughout the state or arrangements can be made to connect to a webcast of the training program.Â Contact Pat Sauer at
