Certified Professional in Stormwater Quality™

CPSWQ – Identifying Professionals with a Comprehensive Knowledge & Understanding of Erosion, Sediment and Stormwater Regulations. Certified Inspectors are recognized by state and federal regulators as qualified professionals in their field. On many jobs and in many specifications CPSWQ Certification is a requirement.

CPSWQ program is intended to ensure certificants meet the Federal requirements including the US Environmental Protection Agency’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System definition of “Qualified Personnel” and also know how to ensure that the projects they oversee, meet the requirements of State and Local regulations.

The CPSWQ training and certification addresses all aspects of providing complete inspections for erosion and sediment control and stormwater compliance. Successful certificants have been tested and have demonstrated their knowledge and understanding of: documentation, communication, safety, the rules and methods of erosion and sediment control and stormwater control and management.
