Self-Inspection Training

Sites permitted under the CSGP are required to complete self-inspections weekly, and within 24 hours of rainfall ½” or more. The law requires that those completing the inspections be “trained individuals”. The definition of “trained” has been controversial. While details of this are being addressed at the federal and state level, many local jurisdictions are leaning toward requiring local training and certification of some kind.

This program was created by the Stormwater Management Department as a tool to help contractors achieve compliance. Feel free to use this PowerPoint presentation as a training tool for your employees. This online training can be viewed and studied at your convenience.

Please click on the slideshow to begin viewing. Speed can be adjusted to your personal preference, or you can simply click the arrows on the side of each slide to advance or return to a previous slide. Click on the diagonal arrow in the bottom right corner for full-screen mode.

Please keep in mind, this is not yet a requirement, only a tool to help educate you and your employees. It is provided to you for free, in an effort to make both your job (and ours) a little easier.

Once you finish viewing the slideshow, click on the link below to take the online test. Upon completion of the test, click “Submit item” and you will be notified via email if you passed. For those that pass, a wall certificate will be sent to the address you provide. Thank you and Good Luck!
