Does WTI have a course on proposed changes to WOTUS definition?

WTI will never ask you to waste your money paying for a course where our instructors’ conjectures are no more useful than anyone else’s. WTI does recommend that each and every citizen interested in wetlands, streams, rivers and lakes and their proper management and regulation, obtain a copy of this and all future proposed rules dealing with the Corps of Engineers Regulatory Program, read them carefully and participate in democracy by submitting meaningful comments and recommendations in response to the regulatory proposal. To that end, here is a link to the Corps Headquarters Regulatory Home page where you will find the links to the proposed rule, agency fact sheets and announcements concerning it: https://www.usace.army.mil/missions/civil-works/regulatory-program-and-permits/  IF and when a rule change is finalized, WTI will provide you with a venue to review pertinent changes to regulations and discuss the possible ramifications of those changes.

What our participants say…


“Instructors were awesome! Course was awesome! A LOT of information, but good information, that I would not have learned anywhere else.”


“Very informative class. I would recommend to anyone that has to do 404/401 permitting applications including wetland delineations and mapping. I appreciated knowing what the regulators will be looking for from previous regulators.”


“It was useful to be able to re-listen to slides as I progressed through the online course. That was a benefit compared to a live course. If I missed something or did not understand, I could “rewind.”


“I just finished the Advanced Hydrology course. It was an excellent course and I learned a lot, both theoretical and practical. Very well done.”


“The instructor knows the 1987 USACE Manual inside and out and is an expert in the field of wetland delineation. I would recommend this course to anyone wishing to expand their knowledge on the subject.”


“I use the Nationwide Permits Complete book on a daily basis and find it extremely valuable. Thank you for continuing to offer courses and such materials to the public.”
