Certified Erosion and Sediment Control Lead (CESCL) - Training and Certification Programs

The Construction Stormwater General Permit requires that site inspections be conducted by a CESCL.  The following training programs are available to meet the training and certification requirements of the General Permit, and BMP C160 Certified Erosion and Sediment Control Lead (CESCL) in Ecology’s stormwater management manuals for eastern and western Washington.  The CESCL certification card is good for three calendar years from the date of training. CESCLs must renew their certifications by taking the one-day (8-hour) recertification course within 42 months (3 years + a ‘grace period’ of 6 months), or by taking the two-day (16-hour) full course again if the card has not been renewed in the past 42 months.

Search Ecology's CESCL Database to find individuals who have completed CESCL training.

Search the Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC) Database (this database is not managed by Ecology).  Current CPESC certification fulfills the requirement for CESCL certification, per Ecology's BMP C160.
