RPM 201
Nov 19, 2019 - Nov 21, 2019
Seattle, WA

RPM 201, an intermediate-level training course, expands on the Remedial Process course. The course is offered as part of the ongoing effort to prepare RPMs for the challenges they will encounter during all aspects of a remedial action. The instructional methodology will include case studies to provide participants an opportunity to apply the skills learned during the course. The course will also include time for participants to ask specific questions about their own sites they currently are working on, as well as emerging technical and programmatic policy and guidance from EPA Headquarters. By taking the course, participants will achieve the following objectives:

  • Learn how to manage common issues or concepts at remedial action sites, such as vapor intrusion, sediment removal, contaminated groundwater plumes and green remediation.
  • Learn project management skills, including management of a project, forecasting resources and costs, planning meetings, documenting site activities and tracking schedules and costs.
  • Learn effective ways to communicate various types of issues at sites to residents and communities.
  • Learn how to incorporate optimization into new and existing remedial actions.

RPM 201 is a 2-½-day training recommended for RPMs with at least six months of experience and may have assisted other RPMs with remedial actions or now are preparing to take the lead in conducting a remedial action. While RPM 201 may be most beneficial to new RPMs with 5 years of experience or less, the course is very interactive and more experienced RPMs that attend will be encouraged to share their field background with the class. THIS COURSE IS NOT OPEN TO ACADEMIA, CONSULTANTS, CONTRACTORS OR ANY PRIVATE ENTITIES. Superfund 101 and the Remedial Process course are prerequisites for EPA attendees to participate in RPM 201.

*This course is offered free of charge to all registrants who are confirmed to attend.*

This class was previously scheduled for May 21-23, 2019.

Daily Class Times: 
Tuesday - 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM
Wednesday - 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM

CESCL: Certified Erosion and Sediment Control Lead Training
CESCL-101
Nov 20, 2019 - Nov 21, 2019
Marysville, WA

CESCL certification is required by the Washington State Department of Ecology, Construction Stormwater General Permit for personnel responsible for monitoring stormwater at construction sites disturbing one or more acres of land, or are part of a larger common plan of development. NWETC’s 2-day CESCL course is a dynamic interaction between traditional classroom style lecture and hands-on field exercises. Interactive dialogue between the attendees and the trainers is also promoted, to encourage a shared learning environment.

Day 1, and the first part of day 2 is spent in the classroom, discussing regulations, discussing impacts to water quality and construction activity, learning the reporting and recordkeeping requirements of the permit, and examining the most up-to-date erosion and sediment control techniques using examples and case studies. Best Management Practices (BMP) products are brought into the class to allow students to see first hand the types of control measures there are available to them in the industry. At the end of the morning on Day 2, the required CESCL exam will be given. 

On the afternoon of day 2, the class will visit a field site to learn more about the BMP products and practice correctly installing a variety of erosion control BMPs. Other BMP demonstrations will also be conducted and the BMP installations performed by the students will be tested against a mock rain event.

Upon completion attendees will have met the requirements of BMP C160 certification and will receive a CESCL card valid for three years.

Registration: Earlybird pricing for registrations $350-$375; $375/$400* thereafter.  Click the registration link below for specific tuition information. (*reduced tuition is available for Native American tribes; government employees; nonprofits; students; and NAEP, NEBC, NWAEP members).
