LID Training Programs

The LID Training Courses Have Changed Platforms

We are in the process of moving all our great content from Blackboard to Canvas and registration is now open for all courses via the links below. However, we are experiencing some technical difficulties with the transition and are pushing out course openings on the new platform until the first part of August 2021. What this means for you:

  1. If you are already registered for the new course spaces, they will become available soon and this page will provide updates as they become available.
  2. If you registered and have been working on courses in the Blackboard system you may continue to progress with your work in that space until further notice. We will capture all grades before the final move and all of your progress will be carried over.
  3. If you registered for the Blackboard course space and wish to be transferred to the new space please email us and submit a migration request.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause and we are working to get these technical issues remedied as soon as possible. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this change please email us and we will do our best to help.

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. Need-based scholarships are available at this time.
