Upcoming dates for Qualified Professional Inspector(QPI) Class

Currently there are no dates set for the next QPI class.

  

What is the Qualified Professional Inspector Program?

The QPI Program consists of a one-day training course, a QPI training manual (provided at the training session), and an exam. After passing the exam, applicants are eligible to obtain a QPI registration or license from the community prior to initiating inspection of construction site stormwater Best Management Practices. 

  

Why do I need this Training?

The Construction General Permit and local Construction Site Runoff Control Ordinances require a Qualified Professional Inspector to inspect all stormwater control measures every seven (7) or fourteen (14) days (depending on the community) and within twenty-four (24) hours of a one-quarter (0.25) inch rain event. All developments that will disturb one acre or more of land in the communities of Floyd County, Clarksville, Jeffersonville, New Albany, Sellersburg, and Madison are required to have a QPI conducting their inspections. 

  

Who Should Attend?

Construction Site BMP Inspectors

Developers

Contractors

Stormwater Coordinators

Urban Conservation Specialists

Recommended for Site Designers

Registration

The fee for the Qualified Professional Inspector Training Course is $100 and will include the Qualified Professional Inspector Manual. Payment is required to take the exam, whether or not you attend the training session. The Qualified Professional Inspector Training Course will be offered twice a year (Spring & Fall). Additional sessions may be scheduled based upon need. To register for the course, please print and fill out the registration form that is attached to this email or find more information at: http://www.clarkswcd.org/Stormwater/QPI.html
