Registration will open for the Fall 2021 Level 2 intensive seminar in June. Tentative dates are November 11, 12, 13, and 17.
The seminar includes online interactive sessions, self-study and homework assignments, group and individual exercises, and a field trip. After the seminar, participants must complete a project and an online open-book test.
Level 2 topics include detailed site analysis, soil and vegetation protection during construction, using natural plant communities as reference landscapes to inspire design, and an in-depth focus on stormwater BMP design and installation, with an eye toward long-term management success. CBLP is focused on creating a connected community of like-minded professionals, and this fast-paced and dynamic class allows dedicated time for networking and socializing with participants and instructors.
To apply for Level 2, you must have already passed the Level 1 exam (or be confirmed to take the exam), and must have experience in design and/or installation of stormwater practices. It is possible for highly experienced professionals to test for Level 1 without completing the course. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a Level 1 waiver. You may apply for Level 2 anytime, and pay once registration opens in June 2021.
Candidates who plan to take Level 2 in fall 2021 must pass the Level 1 exam by October 24.
CBLP will follow CDC safety and hygiene protocols when we gather in person, and will abide by all local and state guidelines for gatherings, which means we cannot rule out Coronavirus-related cancellations. We have instituted a flexible change policy in case you or we need to postpone. Face masks are required.
