Inspection & Maintenance Certification for Stormwater Control Measures in Ohio

The Ohio State University and Summit Soil and Water Conservation District have developed a curriculum based on Ohio maintenance standards and design specifications for Stormwater Control Measures (SCM).  This course was developed to educate and train a workforce to fill this growing niche. This certifying course will provide attendees the required knowledge to confidently identify the SCM, inspect the facility, develop reports, make recommendations to solve common maintenance issues, and carry out the maintenance or develop task orders for maintenance personnel.

This 1.5-day course involves classroom modules on each SCM approved for use in Ohio, conducting realistic inspections of SCMs in a field-learning portion, and an exam to get certified. Participants will receive resources to assist with the classroom modules and learn the about Ohio SCM designs and their inspections.

Course Objectives: Attendees will be able to:

• identify different SCMs and how they function

• identify common deficiencies or issues and recommend corrective measures

• document issues and maintenance activities performed

• identify appropriate maintenance frequency

• provide proficient reports

• identify ways to lessen maintenance cost

Upon completion of the course and successfully passing the exam, the attendee will be awarded a certification and a personal certificate number.  The certification is good for 3 years. There are no annual fees or membership dues.  

The cost of this course at the Ohio Stormwater Conference is $250.00.
