Watershed and stormwater professionals face ever-increasing regulatory requirements, prompting a need for more staff, more technical expertise, and more resources. The Center is dedicated to providing these practitioners with the skills and the tools they need to do more effective and efficient watershed work. We offer technical training on specific watershed management topics through our annual Watershed and Stormwater Webcast Series and our on-site training. We have also trained our audiences through university courses, videos, webinars, institutes, and conferences. Our goal is to understand the training needs of the client and to tailor our training materials to suit unique training objectives and budgets.
Since 2009, the Center has been providing high quality webcasts for stormwater and watershed professionals. Over the past six years, an estimated 17,000 professionals have participated in the Center’s webcasts.
