A Level 1 Recertification course is a 1/2-day workshop available to those inspectors and other individuals who need to renew their Level 1 certifications another three years beyond their currently expiring certification periods. This course reviews current Construction General Permit requirements, including updated SWPPP stabilization and structural practices, for controlling storm water discharges into Impaired and High Quality Waters. The course emphasizes inspection requirements of several management practices for keeping the sediment on the construction site. The Recertification workshop provides a TNEPSC certificate with three (3) hours of Professional Development Hours (PDH) credit upon successful completion of the Certification Exam. Individuals who need to renew their certifications have an option of successfully completing either the above 1-day Level 1 course or the 1/2-day Recertification course.
