CEPSCI Recertification Process
Prior to the expiration date shown on CEPSCI identification cards, Certified Erosion Prevention and Sediment Control Inspectors are required by SC DHEC to complete a DHEC approved professional development training in order to be recertified. Recertification does not require testing for any CEPSCI personnel who complete the approved training prior to his/her certification’s expiration date. Recertification is not permitted by persons who are not currently certified, because either they have never completed CEPSCI certification or they have let their certification lapse. In either of these situations, the potential CEPSCI must complete the full CEPSCI certification process including the approved course followed by successfully passing the exam. (Please visit the CEPSCI Initial Certification page for additional information about this process.)
CEPSCI Recertification Schedule
You should take the recertification course at the earliest possible date. While there will be sufficient courses and seats available for all inspectors needing to complete recertification, we cannot guarantee that recertification can be completed by June 30 for persons who do not complete the course by June 26. Please recognize that any person who conducts an inspection without current certification, as well as any site thus inspected, is in violation of state requirements and may be subject to enforcement actions.
If you have any further questions, please contact us.
Onsite registration begins at 8:00am. Class will begin at 8:30am.
*Select locations onsite registration begins at 12:00pm. Class will begin at 12:30pm.
