Certificants have demonstrated an understanding of the function and proper installation of best management practices (BMPs) used by NCDOT to minimize or control erosion and sedimentation. They have also gained in-depth knowledge of soil erosion, vegetation establishment, and borrow pit dewatering procedures, as well as implementation of erosion/sediment control plans, requirements of various regulatory agencies, and consequences of permit violations.
Certificants have demonstrated knowledge of Best Management Practices (BMPs) in erosion and sediment control, along with knowledge of permit requirements. Erosion and Sediment Control Certification became a requirement for workers on NCDOT projects in 2007, and certificate holders must be recertified every three years.
