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.”
