Construction Site Pollution Prevention Inspectors and Installers Training Certification

To meet the demands in this ever-changing field, the first certification program in Iowa for construction site inspectors was developed in 2004. The ICCSPPI program offers an affordable, time efficient, certification opportunity for inspectors and installers of construction site pollution prevention practices for sediment and erosion control. The program is ideal for 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 General Permit No. 2 regulatory requirements. Topics covered during the training event include: regulatory requirements; erosion, sediment and velocity control, good housekeeping, post construction stormwater management practices for water quality and quantity management; SWPPP essentials; and inspector requirements. A practice inspection is conducted during class and sample inspection forms are provided to workshop attendees.

Certification Requirements

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

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 ICCSPPI Certified Inspectors and Certified Training Instructors for ICCSPPI.
