Wetland Boot Camp
9/18-9/20, 2019 @ Frick Park, Pittsburgh, PA .Earn your "Wetland Certificate" in just 3-days! PERFECT FOR THOSE THAT WANT TO BECOME “wetland delineators” and perform the field work; tying the flagging, collecting the data, writing the reports, and applying for permits. Perfect for Engineers, Surveyors, Managers, Project Managers, Landscape Architects, Geologists, Educators, Developers, Painters, Accountants, etc.
Our 3-Day (24-PDH) "WETLAND BOOT CAMP" IS A FIELD-BASED COURSE FOR THOSE WISHING TO BECOME FIELD "WETLAND DELINEATORS"; PERFORMING THE FIELD WORK, TYING THE FLAGS, COLLECTING THE DATA, WRITING THE REPORTS, AND APPLYING FOR THE STATE AND FEDERAL PERMITS.
During "Wetland Boot Camp" you will learn the essential theory of wetland and stream delineation in the most efficient way possible. We do not discuss the "amazing benefits" of wetlands and streams (although there are many)! We simply teach you how to be a "wetland delineator" and be able to walk in the field and identify, flag, and report the "jurisdictional" wetlands and streams for your land development projects.
First you learn the essential knowledge in a quick classroom lecture, then we quickly head to the field for hands-on, real-world, field-work. This combination of class & field allows you to immediately apply what you have learned and assures that you'll have a keen understanding of the entire wetland delineation process. This is not a biology class. This is a 'delineation' course.
Includes $100+ in wetland equipment:
l) (included) - Wetland Boot Camp WORKBOOK is packed with information, reference, and tips; so you don't have to frantically take notes during the classroom portions of the course. After the course, this Workbook becomes your valuable field-guide to use for years to come.
2) (included)- Wetland Boot Camp Field book - puts all of the essential information in one, easy to use location. We give you exactly what our professional delineators use to perform their delineations, making performing your job even easier.

A major portion of this course is ‘field training’; in the woods, for short walks, on sloped and wet terrain. You are attending this course at your own risk; albeit a small risk. We do our best to pick field locations that are easily accessible with little to no effort required. Still, on the first day we ask that you sign a hold-harmless document for all field work and traveling to the locations.
"Wetland Training Certificate of Completion"
The "wetland training certificate of completion" confirms your 24-hours of comprehensive training in wetland identification and delineation in accordance with Section 4.5(b) of the PA's Engineer, Land Surveyor and Geologist Registration Law. There is no actual government sanctioned program for certifying someone as a "wetland delineator." And no certification is required by any agencies. Much like Erosion & Sedimentation Control Plans, and even preparing your taxes, as long as you use the mandatory State & Federal guidance in the proper way, your submissions will be accepted. Therefore, knowledge and real-world skills are key to a good wetland delineation, so the knowledge and the skills are what we provide.
