Wetland Delineation Certificate Series
The Wetland Delineation Certificate is awarded to participants who attend and successfully complete assignments for Vegetation Identification and Methodology for Delineating Wetlands. You cannot delineate a wetland without experience identifying wetland plants. When you enroll in the series, you should complete the Vegetation Identification course prior to attending the Methodology for Delineating Wetlands course. SEE NEXT PAGE. If you are not familiar with wetlands, hydrology, or vegetation, we strongly recommend that you complete Introduction to Wetlands prior to the series. SEE BELOW.

With new regulations and active enforcement, wetland delineation credentials are essential. Developers, preservationists, and regulatory agencies all have an interest in real estate development, which fuels the demand for qualified consultants and wetland delineators. We offer several wetland training programs to accommodate your skill and experience level.

• • • • Allows you to provide additional services to clients Provides practical field experience and hands-on knowledge Supplies you with valuable reference materials Assists in maintaining your professional licenses

Courses have been submitted for the following, as applicable.

October 2, 2008 $285 before 9/18/08; $295 after; $275 multiple Course Code: EH0102CA09 Do not make the mistake of jumping into the Methodology for Delineating Wetlands course without first being exposed to the basic principles of wetland identification. This one-day combination classroom and field course will teach you the basics of wetland identification and introduce you to the practice of wetland delineation. You will review the skills you need to begin to identify freshwater wetlands and their boundaries. This course will also provide the essential background material needed for further study in the field of wetland delineation.

October 1, 2, 3 and 4, 2008 $1,030 before 9/17/08; $1,050 after; $990 multiple Course Code: EH0401CA09 Learn the methods of the experts! This four-day course will introduce you to delineating wetlands using the Federal Interagency Wetland Delineation Manual, which is required for use in New Jersey. Techniques taught will also be applicable to individuals interested in using the 1987 Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual. Learn how to recognize key indicators of wetlands (hydrophytic vegetation, hydric soils and other signs of wetland hydrology) and how to use them to follow the delineation methods outlined in the manual. Immediately apply criteria learned in the classroom while performing wetland determinations during team field exercises.

The late summer season provides the best examples for learning to identify wetland vegetation. This is an excellent course for beginners who have limited vegetation experience. Learn how to draw a wetland line by identifying a variety of upland and wetland plant species.

Most vegetation species remain available for identification throughout the winter months. With the right clues and tips on what to look for, you can gain the expertise of winter vegetation identification.

Features of Wetland Indicators • Vegetation: Analyze plant communities and identify dominant plants and indicators of hydrophytic vegetation • Soils: Identify sandy and non-sandy hydric soils based on the National List of hydric soil field indicators • Hydrology: Recognize direct and indirect indicators Required Textbook Wetland Indicators: A Guide to Wetland Identification, Delineation, Classification, and Mapping [ISBN 0873718925] R.

September 16, 17 and 18, 2008 $875 before 9/2/08; $895 after; $850 multiple Course Code: EH0602CA09 A wetland construction project requires extensive knowledge and years of experience. Gain that knowledge and consult an expert who has experience of successful and unsuccessful construction projects. You will have not only earned an education but also invaluable consulting time. Learn the techniques of successful wetland mitigation planning and construction recommended by the National Research Council and the US Army Corps of Engineers. Spend time in the field visiting a constructed wetland.

December 3, 4 and 5, 2008 $875 before 11/19/08; $895 after; $850 multiple Course Code: EH0603CA09 The depth, duration and timing of water are the controlling factors in determining which plant communities will ultimately inhabit your constructed wetland. The single biggest mistake in botched wetland construction projects is failure to understand the source and quantity of water feeding your site. Through classroom-based instruction, you will discover NINE different ways to build a wetland. More importantly, you will learn how to calculate the quantity of water going into your water budget for each type during an in-class design project.
