Low Impact Development Statewide Training Program

LIDTrainingHeader2c
The Washington State Department of Ecology is hosting a series of FREE technical trainings over the next 10 months on multiple LID topics throughout the state. Trainings will be 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 being offered by Ecology will be similar in structure to the WSU LID Technical Workshop series, and will cover similar topics. These courses are a great alternative for those unable to commit to the full 8-day WSU Technical Workshop series.

The Low Impact Development Statewide Training Program will offer a certificate for those completing the Intermediate training series. The certificate issued through the Low Impact Development Statewide Training Program will cover similar information to the WSU LID Technical Workshop Series certificate.
