The CBLP-Shorelines certificate course is a 2-part series of professional development workshops designed for existing CBLPs and professionals working along the shoreline who want to add Living Shoreline Services to their business offerings. Workshop instructors are experienced shoreline professionals. Participants who attend all workshops and complete a living shoreline installation practicum will earn the CBLP-Shorelines certificate.
Living Shoreline Basics is a comprehensive overview of the benefits of installing living shorelines, the regulatory environment, and considerations for planning, designing, constructing, and maintaining living shoreline projects that meet General Permit 1 or 2 requirements.

Essential Skills for Living Shorelines is a multi-day interactive workshop delivered in a hybrid format that combines online and classroom learning with field work. Participants will explore site analysis tools and complete a field-based site assessment, apply site data to living shoreline design projects, and complete Joint Permit Applications (JPA) for a Virginia general permit 1 or 2 project. Attendees receive instruction on living shoreline construction, adaptive management, typical maintenance tasks, and maintenance plan development. Individuals pursuing the CBLP-Shorelines certificate will be required to attend a living shoreline installation practicum at a professionally managed living shoreline installation project upon completion of this workshop.
