Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC): Advanced Master Class is a comprehensive advanced online course, which will challenge participants to apply best practices to achieve compliance, and deploy best practices in a fiscally responsible and approvable manner for successful implementation.

This course reviews and explains detailed ESC calculations and applies design, costing, and procurement to new site plan challenges. Fundamental concepts for this course are explored in Erosion and Sediment Control: Master Class Fundamentals, scheduled on January 24, 2023.

Learning Objectives:

  • Highlight case studies that demonstrate compliance at a reasonable cost;
  • Challenge attendees to undertake analysis and design of new sites; and
  • Demonstrate processes and approaches to ensure best ESC outcomes.

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Challenge common conditions and apply best practices to achieve compliance;
  • Apply theory, practice and cost consciousness into new designs and site plans;
  • Overcome common breakdowns in design, approval, contracting & construction; and
  • Utilize a proven, structured and reliable approach to tackle any ESC challenge.

Who Should Attend:

This session is appropriate for all ESC practitioners including civil, environmental and geotechnical engineers, geoscientists, designers, technicians & technologists, biologists, agrologists, foresters, field staff, project managers, contractors, regulatory managers, and all those active in the ESC industry.
