The Erosion & Sediment Control Level 3 course will provide attendees with the opportunity to improve their decision-making process with regards to erosion and sediment management at all stages of the project from concept through to completion.
This course is identified as advanced training and design for those who have completed the Level 1 & 2 courses. Attendees will gain knowledge and skills to develop and/or assess an Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) plan against the requirements of the IECA 2008 “Best Practice Erosion and Sediment Control” guideline.
This 3 day course will also address the theory component for candidates wishing to complete the IECA assessment requirements (fundamentals exam and take home plan preparation assignment) to attain CPESC qualification.

SEDIMENT BASIN DESIGN
The Type A, B & D Sediment Basin Design Course has been developed to support the draft Appendix B (IECA, 2016) document and updated State Planning Policy (Qld).
This forms 1 day of the 3 day course and is focussed at practitioners responsible for the design and/or construction of sediment basins.
Non Member Price
This course has been specifically designed for people tasked with preparing, implementing or assessing erosion and sediment control plans, including, but not limited to:
Planners, Designers, Auditors
Attendees must have an existing understanding and experience with erosion and sediment control.
A base level of knowledge surrounding soils
and the fundamentals of hydrology and hydraulics is preferable.
This course is delivered in partnership with Terry Clark of the Topo Group. Terry has trained over 1,000 public works personnel within QLD, NSW and NT. Terry holds the internationally recognised accreditation ‘Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control’ (CPESC) and has many years of experience in planning, implementing and managing ESC aspects on a wide variety of public works projects.
