Oil & Gas Program Overview

The 15-hour, Stormwater Management for Oil and Gas Construction Activities online certificate program is comprised of seven (7) courses and corresponding exams.

This credentialing program is a problem-centered curriculum which covers conditions commonly encountered during oil and gas construction activities pertinent for stormwater management. 

The program is designed for individuals involved in stormwater management for oil and gas construction activities including inspectors, plan designers, regulators and BMP installers.

The program's central focus educates and trains on how to select, install and maintain Best Management Practices (BMPs) for common conditions encountered during oil and gas exploration and construction activities.

Intended Audience

The Stormwater Management for Oil and Gas Construction Activities is specifically designed for professionals engaged in oil and gas construction activities within West Virginia.
