Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Plan Review and Design Virtual Refresher Training

Construction storm water operators with the Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Plan Review and Design (SESC PRD) certification of training must have their certification renewed every 5 years. Certification holders receive a notice that their certification is about to expire from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) and previously would need to attend a recertification training session at an EGLE district office. However, given the situation regarding COVID-19, all "in person" training required for operators looking to renew their certifications have been suspended.
