Course on Certified Erosion, Sediment and Storm Water Inspector (CESSWI)

With high intensity of rainfall, soil erosion is a natural and common process in Malaysia. However, development activities have escalated this problem by vast deforestation and disturbance of highland area. The significant impacts of soil erosion include water pollution, loss of biodiversity and overall obstruction of scenic view. These impacts intensify if no proper erosion and sediment BMPs are implemented on site. In order to tackle this issue, training of experts on ESCP design is important. However, individuals responsible for implementation (the inspectors and contractors specifically) should also be taken on board for professional training. Thus, CESSWI with high level of prestige it conveys, provide training and certification to qualified individuals in order to inspect sites for compliance.
