Low Impact Development Statewide Training Program

LIDTrainingHeader2c
Welcome to the second session of the Washington Statewide Low Impact Development Training Program (Statewide LID Training Program). The Statewide LID Training Program reflects approximately three years of planning and needs assessment, and will assist you—the design, implementation and maintenance community—properly apply LID principles and design, build, and maintain LID best management practices (BMPs).
 
During the 2015-2016 session (October 2015 through May 2016), 47 trainings will be offered in western and eastern Washington. The curriculum provides fundamental, practical, and technical information targeted for the various disciplines engaged in LID implementation. Training topics include: bioretention, permeable pavement, green roof and rainwater harvesting design; site assessment, planning and layout; operations and maintenance for bioretention and permeable pavement installations; NPDES permit requirements; and more.

New for this year: Statewide Certificates for LID Design and for LID Operations and Maintenance  

LID Training Course Catalog

The LID 2015-2016 Course Catalog (PDF) outlines the 47 trainings  and is organized by level of training (Introduction, Intermediate, and Advanced), subject matter, audience, and region (Western and Eastern Washington). Please check back on this page from time to time to take note of course additions.

Courses for the 2015-2016 are now complete. New classes will be added for the following year once they are scheduled
