FSESCI Training information

The Tier I section of the manual and class cover Chapters 1 through 5. Tier I provides an introduction to stormwater, erosion, and sedimentation control, and teaches BMP (Best Management Practice) installers and operators how to properly select, install, and maintain BMPs. This class is a prerequisite to the Tier II class although both are taught consecutively together.  This section covers, the erosion process, soils, temporary BMPs for erosion and sedimentation control, BMPs using vegetation for erosion control and BMPs for dewatering. 

The Tier II section of the manual and class cover Chapters 6 through 9. Tier II provides additional details on information introduced in the Tier I manual along with the applicable regulations and statutory requirements, stormwater pollution prevention plans, BMPs for Stormwater Management, inspection forms, and enforcement procedures necessary for the proper inspection of BMPs. 

In order for students to receive a certification from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and continuing education credits, they must attend both Tier I and Tier II and successfully complete the final exam with a passing score of 70% or greater.
