CERP Pre-approved IERQC Webinars
Share |

The archived webinars below were created and provided by the Interagency Ecological Restoration Quality Committee (IERQC).  The IERQC hosts monthly webinars in an effort to bring restoration practitioners from across the country together to present and discuss the innovations aimed at improving the quality of ecosystem restoration data.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Great Lakes National Program Office (GLNPO) established this Committee (including federal agencies, contractors, and ecological restoration practitioners) in June 2012 to share and develop quality practices that facilitate collection of reliable data for ecosystem restoration projects funded by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. This webinar series supports this collaborative effort.

Each of these IERQC webinars has been pre-approved for 1 continuing education credit under SER's CERP program. Make sure to watch until the end to get the link for your credits
