Inspector Certification

Initial Certification

The City of Hot Springs Stormwater Division offers a Stormwater Certification Class for anyone who will be conducting construction site stormwater inspections.

Within the city limits of Hot Springs, it is required that all stormwater inspectors complete this class with a passing grade of 80%. The class consists of laws, regulations, SWPPP’s, videos, erosion and sediment controls, inspection procedures and an exam. Certification is good for two years.

Special / individual classes are available for an additional fee of $150 per person. The special / individual classes are not guaranteed, and are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. 

The division strives to accommodate those who seek stormwater education. Anyone interested in the course is strongly encouraged to contact the division to discuss individual circumstances. 


Prior to expiration, inspectors who would like to renew their certification must submit payment of $50 and attend the next stormwater class.  The exam consists of true/false questions.  If the certification is past 30 days of expiration, the full fee for the class will be required.

Due to COVID, please call for upcoming class dates.
