E-Learning Opportunities

ECOSS offers practical training and solutions for municipalities facing ever-increasing regulatory requirements. Due to the ongoing Washington State COVID-19 Stay Home, Stay Healthy order, ECOSS is currently offering its stormwater training classes as an online webinar series. We believe this will help you accommodate your program’s training needs. These classes help cities meet Municipal staff training requirements for the Phase I and II NPDES Stormwater permits.

ECOSS prepares municipal staff to effectively manage their stormwater programs.

These courses are designed for Operations and Maintenance (O&M) staff and other personnel who directly and indirectly influence a city’s stormwater program success. The base content serves as a platform for each municipality to add their own jurisdiction-specific approach to each subject area.

Price per webinar: $150
Five-webinar bundle: $650 (Savings of $100!)
Through February 14, 2021, save an additional $50 and pay only $600 for the five-webinar bundle with promo code: NEWYEAR.

ECOSS’ Municipal Stormwater Education Program

These courses are designed for Operations and Maintenance (O&M) staff and other personnel who directly and indirectly influence a city’s stormwater program success.

  • Stormwater experts deliver innovative and professional classes ranging from two hours to two days, depending on the topic
  • Classes provide a foundation of content developed with input from a Steering Committee represented by 15 cities and counties, small to large, across Washington state
  • The base content serves as a platform for each municipality to add their own jurisdiction-specific approach to each subject area

Prepare Municipal Staff to:

  • Meet NPDES educational permit requirements for Operations and Maintenance (O&M) and other staff
  • Discuss practical applications and operational considerations of stormwater management from multiple viewpoints
  • Diversify existing knowledge, skills and abilities of staff
  • Enhance municipal stormwater programs with improved communication and understanding of stormwater issues across all departments

 Testimonials from Municipal Stormwater Training Class attendees:

  •  “I think this class should be attended by all employees within a municipality, not just Stormwater and O&M staff.  As an Admin staff member, it’s helpful to know how to respond when I receive calls about spills.”
  •  “I now have a greater awareness and ability to comply with the city’s stormwater permit. I am better able to explain stormwater issues to coworkers and policymakers.”
  •  “I do public outreach. I am now better able to communicate this information with the public.”
  •  “These trainings will help us develop internal roles and responsibilities across municipal departments.”
