Here in NY we have a 4 hour course that cost $75. You need a certificate renewed every 3 years.

A card holder and on site card holder is required on any private or public project that disturbs one acre or more of area at one time. You would then need a inspection log kept on a weekly basis for review. You also need a swppp plan and permit from DEC, the spec book would have one already in place most of the time. Quite a lot of information on New Yorks DEC web site.

I can't imagine that other states wouldn't have the same kind of laws in place.

Also smaller jobs can be written for violations just the same if sediment is leaving the work area. The course is worth taking.

Take a project like AdvanceWall or Dirtman is doing every day. I would check you states DEC web site.

There is a general permit rule for certain conditions here in Texas. I think that's for under 5 acres but someone correct me if I'm wrong. I see a lot of violations here ranging from poor erosion control to failure to keep up with BMPs. I've talked with the state agency that administers the EPA phase II rules but there isn't enough enforcement unless you are near a waterway or municipal drain system. Luckily, what I do most of the time is considered a best management practice and I read up a lot about erosion control. Have not seen any mandates for classes, yet, but I imagine it's coming.

The erosion control falls under our state Heavy Construction license. Im working on mine right now, also focusing on BMPs for stormwater and flood water runoff.
