Montana QCIS+ Program

QCIS Program Overview

The Qualified Compliance Inspector of Stormwater – Advanced (QCIS+) credentialing program employs a blended training approach, combining five ADA compliant self-paced interactive online courses with three Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) sessions. This advanced program equips individuals with the necessary qualifications to conduct thorough stormwater inspections in accordance with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting program.

These courses cover a range of topics including erosion and sediment control, pollution prevention (good housekeeping), on-site construction inspections, and the regulations outlined by the NPDES permitting program. Upon successful completion of these courses, participants will be well-equipped to perform construction stormwater inspections in compliance with NPDES standards.

The additional VILT sessions are designed to enhance participants' comprehension by fostering collaboration among peers, engaging with the instructor for guidance, and completing inspection exercises to apply the concepts learned in the online courses.


This program has been reviewed and recognized by the EPA and is a Level 300 United States Green Build Council approved training.
