Q: Does your Qualified SWPPP Practitioner and Developer Training Class geared more toward General Industry or Construction Industry?
A: QSP/D training is for the Construction General Permit, and QISP training is for the Industrial General Stormwater Permit.
Q: What is the difference between 1-day, 2-day, and 3-day training?
A: See above for the 1-day QISP training and pre-requisites. The QSP training is 2-days, for those who want to inspect construction sites for stormwater. The QSD class adds a third day to that training, for those who want to write the Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs). The QSP/D training is good stormwater information for a QISP if you will be doing construction work on your industrial facility, but the two are unrelated NPDES permits and completely separate trainings.
Q: When QSP/D and QISP classes be offered?
A: I typically do QSP/D training in early June and November each year. This year the QISP training is in October.
