Effective July 1, 2013, the training and certification responsibility for Stormwater Management (SWM) and Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) has moved from DCR to DEQ. As part of this move, DEQ has changed from a paper/check registration process to an online/credit card registration process.
The course schedule of the ESC courses is available on the DEQ website. For your convenience, you can now register for these classes by visiting the VBCA Knowledge Center at https://covkc.virginia.gov/dhcd/vbca. Completion of these classes will qualify for up to eight hours each of DHCD continuing education. If you would like more information about the SWM or ESC training and certification, visit the DEQ training website at http://www.deq.virginia.gov/ConnectWithDEQ/TrainingCertification.aspx.
