New Online Only LID Certificate Program is live!


We are pleased to be offering a new Online Low Impact Development (LID) Certificate Program! The training program has transitioned to an online only system. The online, self-paced courses include the theoretical basis for designing and maintaining LID systems. 

Registration links for those course spaces can be found below.


As always, thank you for your continued support! Feel free to email us with your ideas on how to move forward.

If you would like to receive either certificate, you must register for your chosen certificate AND pass all associated assessments.

To register for the online portion of the LID Operations & Maintenance Certificate use the following link:

To register for the online portion of the LID Design Certificate use the following link:

 http://www.eiseverywhere.com/285516



There are important features of the new training system that you should be familiar with:
  • To receive a certificate of completion, participants must register, go through the course material, and pass the assessments for all modules in that certificate track.
  • Registration will be for an entire LID Certificate track - the LID Design Certificate and/or the LID Operations & Maintenance (O&M) Certificate. Registering for individual modules within the certificate tracks will not be an option in the near-term.
  • The LID Design Certificate comprises FIVE modules, while the LID O&M Certificate comprises THREE modules.




The curriculum provides fundamental, practical, and technical information targeted at 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.
