LID Training Programs

Washington Stormwater Center offers two tracks for our LID Training Certificate program, Green Infrastructure Design, and Operations & Maintenance. These online, self-paced courses include the theoretical basis for designing and maintaining LID systems. We offer need-based scholarships and scholarships for applicants who work with under-resourced or BIPOC communities. These scholarships currently only apply to the training for professionals. Please contact us and let us know if any criteria apply to you.

CEUs Now Available!

The Washington Stormwater Center is pleased to announce the addition of continuing education units (CEUs) to our online LID course curriculum! As of July 11, 2022 students will be able to apply CEUs to their coursework at the time of registration for an additional fee of $10. Due to this requirement and the extra verification steps needed as the student moves through the course, current registrants are unfortunately ineligible. If you are registering for the course and are interested in this option please be sure to select the add CEU option at the time of registration for the Design and/or O&M courses.
