Inspection and Maintenance of Stormwater Practices

The Iowa Certification for Inspection and Maintenance of Stormwater Practices (ICIMSP) was developed to provide a comprehensive understanding and access to tools needed to keep stormwater practices in working order to improve water quality, manage water quantity, and reduce the likelihood of practice failure.

Topics covered include: Overview of stormwater management and regulations, Iowa Stormwater Management Manual for stormwater BMPs, components, function, inspection and maintenance of BMPs, field tour and tools needed for success as a certified ICIMSP professional.

For upcoming training opportunities, including ICIMSP event, please visit our training calendar.

Certification Requirements

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

A certificate recognizing you as an ICIMSP is issued to those that fulfill the above requirements. As part of certification, your name and contact information is added to a statewide database of certified individuals.

Upon completion, participants will gain access to all course materials and presentations, including the ISWEP-produced “Inspection and Maintenance Guide for Stormwater Practices”.

As with all ISWEP training programs, we do not require professional development hours or continuing education credits for our certification programs. We simply ask individuals attend a recertification event within the 3-year period in which your certificate is valid.
