METI’s Erosion & Sediment Control Training gives you approaches to protecting construction sites, adjacent properties and water bodies.

With METI’s Erosion & Sediment Control Training, you receive instruction on the principles of Erosion & Sediment Control and key applications.

When someone wants to interact with a watercourse, such as install a crossing, withdrawal water, or add erosion protection, they must follow the rules set in the Activity Designation Regulations and the Nova Scotia Watercourse Alterations Standard.  Train in the standard with our Erosion & Sediment Control Training.
