About Our Courses – Over 7,333 Inspectors Trained!

The National Stormwater Center’s certified courses focus on training stormwater inspectors who are charged with  understanding permits, interpreting and enforcing permit regulations, and who serve as our best defense against pollutants entering America’s waterbodies by inspecting regulated construction, municipal, and industrial activities.

Permit compliance is the key to achieving the goals of the Clean Water Act, and it is these inspectors who make the difference.  Our courses are developed and presented by former Federal and State stormwater enforcement officers for the purpose of cultivating stormwater inspectors who are knowledgeable and who possess the necessary skills and demeanor to be effective in their duties.

Graduates of our classes, who must achieve a minimum overall testing score of 75%, are awarded certification by the National Stormwater Center.  This certification indicates that the services they conduct are being performed by professionals who have met the established standards of knowledge, experience, and competence required in the field of stormwater inspections.
