  • Laws governing erosion and sedimentation

Subcontractor Awareness Seminar Attendees typically include:

  • Grading personnel, such as grading and earthmoving equipment operators
  • Irrigation system personnel (residence, commercial, and industrial sites)
  • Landscape personnel
  • Utility personnel (excludes entities regulated by the PSC or FERC and other entities listed in O.C.G.A. 12-7-17[10], if within a Common Development)
  • Wastewater personnel installing on-site systems (includes septic tank excavation and drain fields)
  • Well-drilling personnel (includes directional boring equipment operators)
  • Plumbers and electricians (will require certification if conducting a land-disturbing activity within a permitted project site)

What if I already attended a Level IA Fundamentals Seminar?

If you are working in a subcontractor capacity and possess a Level IA certification, you are not required to take the Subcontractor Awareness Seminar, but you will need to keep your Level 1A (Blue Card) Certification up to date.
