Erosion Control
Training & Certification

001 Erosion Control offers comprehensive training and certification courses designed to teach critical techniques in erosion and sediment control. Through the expert instruction of Dan DeWiest, inspectors receive extensive training in proper documentation and compliance.


We will provide disinfectant gel, hand wipes, face masks, and touchless temperature check in all of our classes in order to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our valued students, their families, their co-workers, and their communities.

Why should you choose 001 Erosion Control for your training and certification?

001 Erosion Control offers a one-day certification course, reducing your travel expenses and employee down time versus a standard two-day class. Our pricing is all-inclusive – there are no additional fees or charges, and all course materials and manuals are included. You will also receive a flash drive with additional permit and inspection forms. We support our military and first responders, offering substantial discounts as outlined below. Also included in your registration, you will enjoy coffee and donuts, lunch, and beverages throughout the day. After the course is completed, you will receive an evaluation form to give your feedback on the instructor. We take these comments very seriously and post them on our website.

Your Instructor: Dan DeWiest

I began working on this program back in 1993. This was a newly created position. When I read the job qualifications, it looked tailor made for me. It required a background in construction, teaching, permitting and inspection. I spent over a year traveling all over Florida to assess the status and needs of the program. I then gathered information from a wide variety of sources, and added some original material of my own. We put the manual out for peer review and made some refinements. We then conducted some trial classes and learned from some of the best. We started to conduct our first certification classes in late 1997. I hold Inspector Certificate #001 and Instructor Certificate #001. Thus the name 001 Erosion Control. While at FDEP I conducted over 30 classes, certifying over 1500 inspectors. Since leaving FDEP in 2001 I have continued to conduct classes, and have surpassed 100 classes with several thousand inspectors certified. One of my favorite compliments is that I make a dull subject seem interesting, with just enough real life stories to make it relevant.
