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.
