Why Should You Take This Qualified SWPPP Practitioner (QSP) Course?

Rainfall can cause many problems for construction sites. Runoff water can flow through stockpiled construction material or across disturbed soil areas and pick up pollutants or sediment. The runoff typically ends up in streams or rivers that flow to the ocean. With critical changes in requirements under the new EPA Construction General Permit, construction site Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs) must be developed following the requirements of the EPA or applicable state and describe the specific conditions of the site and plans for development.

California State Water Resources Control Board - In California, dischargers whose projects disturb one or more acres of soil or whose projects disturb less than one acre but are part of a larger common plan of development that in total disturbs one or more acres, are required to obtain coverage under the General Permit for Discharges of Storm Water Associated with Construction Activity - Construction General Permit Order 2009-0009-DWQ. Construction activity subject to this permit includes clearing, grading and disturbances to the ground such as stockpiling, or excavation, but does not include regular maintenance activities performed to restore the original line, grade, or capacity of the facility.

The Construction General Permit requires the development and implementation of a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). The SWPPP should contain a site map(s) which shows the construction site perimeter, existing and proposed buildings, lots, roadways, storm water collection and discharge points, general topography both before and after construction, and drainage patterns across the project. The SWPPP must list Best Management Practices (BMPs) the discharger will use to protect storm water runoff and the placement of those BMPs. Additionally, the SWPPP must contain a visual monitoring program; a chemical monitoring program for "non-visible" pollutants to be implemented if there is a failure of BMPs; and a sediment monitoring plan if the site discharges directly to a water body listed on the 303(d) list for sediment. Section A of the Construction General Permit describes the elements that must be contained in a SWPPP.

 

Course Duration:  Take this 2-day Qualified SWPPP Practitioner (QSP) course to become the stormwater professional responsible for implementing the SWPPP. The Qualified SWPPP Practitioner (QSP) course is an overview and review of necessary forms and regulations governing pollution caused by stormwater, especially implementing a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). This course describes the SWPPP development process and provides helpful guidance and tips for implementing an effective Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan on your construction site. A more detailed explanation of what is covered in this class can be found in our course syllabus. 

 

What is the difference between a QSD and a QSP? 

A QSP implements a SWPPP plan while a QSD prepares it. A QSD can perform the same functions as a QSP except a QSP cannot perform the QSD certification items.

 

How do I become a QSD or QSP?

To become qualified as a QSP/QSD and receive a certificate you will need to take training (in person) and the exam (online), and have received a secondary certificate of underlying (pre-requisite) certification after taking the exam. 

 

 

Here are the steps:

1) Take QSP Training Course in-person

2) Go to the Office of Waters Program (OWP) Website and Register (create login) and pay a $125.00 fee (good for 2 years). Click here to get started.

3) Provide proof of pre-requisite qualification or registration (in addition to QSP training). Click here to view a list of accepted pre-requisite programs from the State Water Resources Control Board's Storm Water Program.

4) Take and pass the online test at the OWP Website. Your certificate will be emailed to the email address you have provided. 

*Note: You can take the exam before you have completed the pre-requisite program. 


QSP Exam - (maximum 2 hours allowed). To become a QSP, you must pass the timed 2-hour QSP exam with a score of better than 70%.

He kept the class interested with the subject, since at times it could be very dry material. Hopefully the material that was covered, and the studying that he recommended will help me with the QSP exam.

It would have been a 5 star but to lecture for 4 hours straight is very bad, even for those classroom pro's that can sit... It would have been a 5 star but to lecture for 4 hours straight is very bad, even for those classroom pro's that can sit all day. It is my experience that a person can only absorb 4050 mins. of instruction at a time. That's why they give breaks to students. The information was great.

He was very knowledgeable, but was extraordinarily uninteresting to listen to. The "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" questions were a nice touch, but that was only a small portion of the 16 hours we had to sit through.
