For applicants

Green infrastructure (GI) has become a critical component to comprehensive stormwater management. However, successful implementation of green infrastructure requires access to adequately skilled workforce available to perform the installation, inspection, and maintenance tasks.

By underscoring your competency in these areas, certification increases your competitiveness in the job market, and provides a pathway to higher paying positions.


The NGICP exam schedule will be administered on the following dates:

  • Friday, March 23, 2018
  • Friday, May 4, 2018
  • Friday, June 15, 2018
  • Friday, September 28, 2018 (timed with WEFTEC)
  • Friday, November 16, 2018
  • Friday, January 25, 2019

The fee for the NGICP exam is $200.

Applicants for the NGICP certification exam are required to complete a GI training course approved by WEF.  WEF is currently working with partners and our community of trainers to identify training opportunities to address the training requirement.

Future training dates will be noted here once the dates and locations are confirmed and will be added to the registration page.


For individuals that are ready to train and test, the Water Environment Federation will be providing a combined NGICP training and exam on March 19-23, 2018. Click here for more details.
