Why participate in the NGICP?

NGICP is being built by a coalition of stormwater leaders from across the country. These program founders welcome your input to help them design a flexible program that can meet the needs of a wide variety of different GI programs.

The NGICP components include:

  • A robust certification program governance structure (oversight body, program policies, and procedures)
  • A national job analysis that defines the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed by individual workers for GI construction, inspection, and maintenance
  • A library/body of knowledge assembled to specifically provide resources to support the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed by GI construction, inspection, and maintenance workers
  • A national curriculum developed to support the transfer of knowledge, skills, and abilities to GI construction, inspection, and maintenance workers
  • A set of training slides and speaker notes that support the national curriculum
  • The certification exam
