Course description

The CISEC-Canada program was launched in the spring of 2011 as a partnership between TRCA and CISEC, Inc., out of Parker, Colorado.  The CISEC program was developed in 2005 and continues to be the leading certification program for inspectors in the U.S.  TRCA has partnered with CISEC, Inc. to provide a Canadian version of this highly respected program.

The CISEC-Canada Program consists of a 1.5 day training course, followed by an optional four-hour exam.

  • Level 1 exam is for those having less than two years of sediment and erosion control and/or storm water inspection experience seeking a CAN-CISEC In Training (IT) designation.
  • Level 2 exam is for existing CAN-CISEC IT registrants seeking to sit for the second portion of the IT exam, having now fulfilled all application qualifications.
  • Level 3 exam is for those having at least two years of sediment and erosion control and/or storm water inspection experience seeking a full CAN-CISEC designation.

The course is open to anyone, while registration for the Level 2 & 3 certification exam requires pre-approval by CISEC, Inc.  To be approved for the exam, participants must complete an application form illustrating that they have a minimum of two years experience related to erosion and sediment control inspections and have participated in at least one other ESC training initiative in the last four years.  Three letters of reference are also required.
