Level 1-A: Fundamentals of Erosion and Sediment Control Re-Certification
Oct. 26, 8:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m.

Do you need your re-certification hours for erosion?

In 2003, HB285 amended the Georgia Erosion and Sediment Control Act of 1975. These amendments included a mandatory certification program for all individuals involved in land disturbing activities in Georgia. 

This certification must be renewed every three years.  Each certified individual shall be required to attend and participate in at least four hours of approved continuing education courses, as established by the Commission. (O.C.G.A. 12-7-19)  The Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission (GSWCC) in consultation with the Stakeholder Advisory Board have established the re-certification requirements.  There will not be an examination required for re-certification. 

Participants must bring a photo ID and your blue card. LATE ARRIVALS WILL NOT BE ADMITTED!

Jim Gaskill will teach the class. Jim has more than 30 years experience with the Georgia Department of Transportation and is now the head of his own consulting company, E & S. mailto:education@atlantahomebuilders.comSpecialties, Inc.
