Certified Wetland Delineator Training Courses
This course consists of 12 online modules in which we will study how to identify areas of land that would be subject to the Clean Water Act and the Rivers and Harbors Act regulations as administered by the US Army Corps of Engineers and the US Environmental Protection Agency. Each module takes about 3-4 hours to complete and students are welcome to compete them at your own pace during the class’ 16-week time frame. In addition to the modules, there is a field practicum examination that students must schedule with their instructor. The examination is performed at a local wetland site with the teacher monitoring the test virtually. Upon successful completion of the class and a grade of 80% or higher, you will become a Certified Wetland Delineator.
Your certification will be valid for five years and is eligible for renewal with additional continuing education, and you will also be issued an electronic seal that can be used for reports and proposals.
