What is the Florida Stormwater, Erosion, and Sedimentation Control Inspector (FSESCI) Program?

Graphic for Florida Stormwater Education
The FSESCI Program is a training and certification program implemented by the Water Quality Restoration Program that is designed to teach and qualify students to perform stormwater inspections on construction and development sites. The goals of this program include educating installers and inspectors on proper Best Management Practice (BMP) selection, installation, layering, maintenance, and restoration, and how to correctly inspect BMPs for use during and after construction to minimize and eliminate onsite and offsite impacts from uncontrolled erosion, sedimentation, and other polluted discharges.

The FSESCI program is a two-day class that follows the curriculum in the Florida Stormwater, Erosion and Sedimentation Control Inspector’s Manual. Upon the completion of the class, a 1-hour proctored examination is administered and a minimum passing grade of 70 percent is required to receive the FSESCI Qualified Inspector certificate.

Becoming a FSESCI Qualified Inspector allows one to perform stormwater inspections in the State of Florida in fulfillment of the requirements of the NPDES Construction Generic Permit (CGP).
