The Erosion and Sediment Control Level 1 course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to assist them with installing and maintaining various erosion, sediment and drainage control measures onsite and comply with project and legislative requirements surrounding Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC).
This course is delivered in partnership with Terry Clark of the Topo Group.
The content of this course is based on the “Best Practice Erosion and Sediment Control” (IECA, 2008) and has been designed to provide practical instruction on how to implement control measures in an effective and compliant manner.
