Update !!


The Statewide LID Training Program has officially launched an online assessment system for those whom have taken certificate track courses. If you have taken one or more of the courses required for the certificates you should have received an email with login information. If you did not receive an email and believe you should have, please contact lid.inquiries@wsu.edu.


The Statewide Low Impact Development Training Program will assist you—the design, construction and maintenance community—in properly applying LID principles for the implementation of LID best management practices (BMPs).

 
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.

LID Training Course Catalog

The LID 2015-2016 Course Catalog (PDF) outlines the 47 trainings that were held during the last session and is organized by level of training (Introduction, Intermediate, and Advanced), subject matter, audience, and region (Western and Eastern Washington).

Courses for the 2015-2016 session are now complete. Classes will begin again in January 2017. Registration information will be available here once classes have been scheduled.

For questions about registration or courses for the Statewide LID Training Program, please contact the LID Training Team hotline at training@cascadiaconsulting.com or call 206-449-1163.
