Web-based NPDES Permit Writers' Training

The NPDES Permit Writer's Course is a five-day course covering the key elements of NPDES Permit development. The course is taught by experienced EPA staff and contractors and has been one of EPA's most successful courses over the past decade.

Because of the popularity of the course, EPA has recorded Web-based presentations covering the material presented in several key modules of the live course. These recorded presentations enable participants who attended the NPDES Permit Writers' Course to review the material on demand in a self-paced environment. The presentations also are useful for those who have not attended a live course, but wish to become familiar with important concepts of the NPDES permits program.
