Erosion and Sediment Control

  • Four one-day professional development workshops
  • A comprehensive and integrated course for practitioners
  • Based on the IECA Best Practice in Erosion and Sediment Control Manual (2008)
  • Includes detailed coverage of the revised Appendix B (2018) including Type A and Type B sediment basins
  • Covers the theory required for the IECA Fundamentals Examination for Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC)

Workshop 1: Fundamentals of Erosion and Sediment Control
Workshop 1 covers the regulatory requirements, basic soil science, problem soils and how, when and why to use various erosion and sediment control products and practices. It provides independent guidance on the selection, suitability and application of temporary and permanent erosion and sediment control measures on construction and development sites. The workshop includes exercises on reading and understanding real-world examples of Erosion and Sediment Control Plans.

Workshop 2: How to Use the IECA Guidelines
Workshop 2 reviews the contents of the IECA Best Practice in Erosion and Sediment Control Manual and provides guidance, including the use of a flowchart, on how to use the manual for developments in Queensland. Participants require a calculator.

Workshop 3: Water Management on Construction Sites
Workshop 3 trains those responsible for the design of erosion and sediment control measures on development sites. This workshop focuses mainly on sediment basins and water diversion structures, two key features of any Erosion and Sediment Control Plan. Participants should bring a notebook, pen and, if possible, a laptop computer. Software will be provided.

Workshop 4: Preparing and Reviewing Erosion and Sediment Control Plans
Workshop 4 draws together the information presented in the earlier workshops. It covers the identification and design of erosion and sediment control measures on development sites and their delineation on a plan. It involves extensive group work and practical exercises to prepare and review ESCPs on major projects. Participants should ideally bring a laptop computer to complete the various exercises (one between two or three participants is acceptable).

Cost :
