Tuesday, June 26, 2018

HBA Office - 7116 Hodgson Memorial Drive, Savannah, GA 31406

8:00 am - 12:00 pm Class

 

· It is a State Requirement - In 2003, HB 285 Amended the Georgia Erosion and Sediment Act of 1975. This amendment included a mandatory certification program for individuals involved in land disturbing activities in Georgia. This certification program is administered by the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission (GSWCC). All certifications issued by GSWCC are valid for three years. According to the current state law, a certified individual shall be required to attend and participate in at least four hours of approved continuing education courses, as established by the Commission, every three years (O.C.G.A. 12-7-19)

· Is there a "Grace Period" after my card expires?

As of July 1st, 2013, the GSWCC has lifted the grace period restrictions.  Now, anyone may renew their certification at any time by taking a 4 hour renewal (re-certification). Your certification will be good for 3 years from your renewal date if you take the course after your expiration date or it will be good for 3 years from your expiration date if you renew prior to your expiration date.

· Will there be a re-certification exam? - There will NOT be an exam for re-certification. To become re-certified, individuals must attend a course or courses totaling 4 hours of instruction.

· When will I receive my new certification card? Individuals with 4 or more hours will receive a re-certification sticker in the mail approximately 2 weeks before their certification card expires.

· Where can I get more information? Call the HBA of Savannah at 912-354-6193
