Courses and training in erosion and sediment control are available throughout Australia and New Zealand. These courses are aimed at all sectors of the industry from field personnel through to those responsible for reviewing Erosion and Sediment Control and Soil and Water Management Plans.

A number of the courses offered are designed to prepare candidates for the Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control exam.

"IECA-Approved" training is delivered by providers who are regarded as technically proficient in erosion and sediment control. Training that is "IECA Approved" should always accord with recognised best-practice techniques.
