What's New

I will be giving a Webinar through the Society of Wetland Scientists on April 27 at 1:00 pm Eastern Time.
Because there is so much confusion over the future of the currently-stayed 2015 "Waters of the US Rule", I am still covering it in class (along with the Rapanos SCOTUS and SWANCC SCOTUS protocols) until it is clear that it has been rescinded.
We are adding three HAZWOPER Train-the-Trainer Training Courses in 2017 in Tampa: April 23 - 26, 2017, July 24 - 26, 2017, and October 30 - November 1, 2017. See our 2017 Training Schedule.
Our Wetland Delineation Training Classes and Wetland Permitting Training Classes have been pre-approved by the SWSPCP as meeting standards for content and instruction to receive credits and/or points toward SWSPCP Professional Certification or SWSPCP Professional Certification Renewal.
Our Wetland Delineation Training classes in Florida now include the Florida Statewide Wetland Delineation Training for no additional fee.

We have changed our Regional Supplement class from a 1-day class to a 2-day class. This class is for persons who have already taken a preliminary 4 - 5 day Wetland Delineation Training Class but seek direction on the protocols of the Regional Supplement. We assume you have a basic knowledge of wetland science.

Our highly-regarded nationwide wetland training class.  Now in its 20th year, Richard Chinn, who was certified during the Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineator Certification Program Demonstration Phase and Professional Wetland Scientist (PWS), has personally provided this training to 7000+ wetland professionals in 600+ classes in 23 states plus Puerto Rico. Richad Chinn has done onsite classes for Departments of Transportation in Alaska, Texas, Florida, and Mississippi.  You won't find a more experienced and professional wetland instructor and he is neither boring nor dry!

This course includes training in the Regional Supplement in effect for the area where the training is held but training in an alternate Regional Supplement can be provided upon request.

Take advantage of Richard Chinn's years of classroom and field training experience, technical and instructional!

"Richard provided excellent training on wetlands and waters of the United States. He covered more information in four days than I received in several semesters of university study. I've worked throughout the US, Asia, and Latin America and the only thing I can say is that I wish I had taken one of Richard's classes sooner. Top notch and well worth the investment." Ben Henderson

Regional Supplement Training

We offer this 2-day course for persons who have already taken a 4 - 5 day class in wetland delineation and want to improve their skills in the Regional Supplement.

You do not need to register for the Regional Supplement Training if you are registering for the Wetland Delineation Training as this Regional Supplement Training is included in our 4-day Wetland Delineation Training class.

Wetland Permitting Training

This course picks up where our Wetland Delineation Training course left off!  Learn advanced topics of wetlands regulations and permitting to make you an even better wetland delineator, manager and scientist including an intensive look at each type of permit (including Nationwide, Regional and Individual Permits, how to satisfy their requirements, and how to address all the pertinent wetland issues expected of a wetland professional.

Florida Statewide (62-340 FAC) Wetland Training
