This 1.5 day event hosted by Auburn University and the International Erosion Control Association will focus on providing classroom and hands-on training geared for participants involved in the installation of construction site erosion and sediment control practices. A half-day classroom component will cover a wide variety of topics that will be reinforced with field installations during the full day field component. The field component will be held at the Auburn University – Erosion and Sediment Control Testing Facility and will include trainee participation to install erosion and sediment control practices in a typical field setting and will include channelized flow demonstrations to show the effectiveness of properly installed practices. Participants will gain knowledge in governing compliance regulations, leadership tactics, and hands-on installation and implementation tools to provide efficient and effective erosion and sediment controls. To provide an interactive and personalized learning environment, registration is limited to 50 participants. Participants are encouraged to register and attend the field day. Payment may be made online or by phone at (303) 640-7554. Registrants are reminded that registration is not complete until payment is made - register early, registration is limited. The registration fee includes handout materials, breakfast (Thursday), lunch (Thursday), break refreshments (Wednesday & Thursday) and a certificate of Professional Development Hours.
