Low Impact Development Statewide Training Program

LIDTrainingHeader2c
In 2014-2015, the Washington State Department of Ecology hosted a series of FREE technical trainings  on multiple LID topics throughout the state. Trainings were offered at three levels: Introductory, Intermediate, and Advanced.

Ecology’s technical trainings are designed to build on, not replace, the WSU LID Technical Workshop series scheduled for Fall 2014. The Intermediate level trainings offered by Ecology were similar in structure to the WSU LID Technical Workshop series, and covered similar topics. These courses were a great alternative for those unable to commit to the full 8-day WSU Technical Workshop series.

LID Training Course Catalog

The LID 2014-2015 Course Catalog had been developed to outline 64 trainings being offered Western and Eastern Washington between September 2014 through May 2015. The trainings, or modules, are organized by level of training (Introduction, Intermediate, and Advanced), subject matter, audience, and region (Western and Eastern Washington).
