BC-CESCL - Certified Erosion Sediment Control Lead
Share |



BC-CESCL is a certified program adapted to British Columbia from the established programs in Washington & Alaska and is administered by the Erosion and Sediment Control Association of BC. The certificate is available to all ESC practitioners but largely focused on site personnel, from inspectors to contractors to site superintendents who wish to demonstrate understanding and commitment to effective ESC on their sites.


This course will provide the student with 2 days of instruction in erosion and sediment control. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be a Certified Erosion and Sediment Control Lead (CESCL) recognized by the ESCA BC and other accrediting agencies (renewable 3-year certification card). Construction projects greater than one acre in Washington and Alaska now require the availability of a CESCL. Municipalities in British Columbia are increasingly looking to Qualified Professionals to manage construction sites.


BC-CESCL training courses will be provided at various locations within BC throughout the year. See the calendar on our homepage for upcoming course dates.

  • Erosion and Sedimentation Impacts
