In this 40-hour training you will learn how to properly identify the key factors that determine wetlands, based in part on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wetlands Delineation Manual, 2012 Supplement for Northeast Region, and the most recent National Wetland Plant List and NRCS Hydric Soils guidance. Federal regulations, State regulations and appropriate permitting in relation to wetlands will also be covered. This certificate course offers professional experience and applied field experience.
Offered over a series of five Fridays, the general schedule will involve morning lectures and afternoon field work, although this may be slightly altered due to weather.
Lecture topics include science of wetland hydrology, hydric soils, and hydric vegetation; wetland development; and current VT regulations. Field practicals will include soil and plant identification, and wetland delineation in accordance to the ACOE Field Delineation Manual.
Individuals who complete the program will receive a Certificate of Training.
