  Greetings!  

 

Just in case you haven't heard.......

Announcing NEW 2013 requirements coming out of GSWCC for Level 1,Level 1A, Level 1B and Level II certifications.   

 

NOTIFICATION: Effective January 1, 2013 applicants seeking to obtain or renew Erosion & Sediment Control Certification for land disturbing activities must provide the GSWCC with the following items:

  1. A signed and sworn affidavit verifying the applicant's lawful presence in the United States
  2. One of 16 secure and verifiable documents as required by Georgia law.
  3. A Checklist for Verification of Lawful Presence within the United States.

Amendments to O.C.G.A. 50-36-1, requires the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission (Commission) to obtain a signed and sworn affidavit verifying the applicant's lawful presence in the United States.

The law requires that any individual receiving a state and local public benefit must be able to verify their citizenship or legal immigration status to receive that benefit. The State of Georgia has defined Erosion and Sediment Control Certification as a public benefit. Thus the need for this additional step in the certification process.

Trying to Figure it all out! Call us for help

Documentation Required:

The Commission requires all individuals to submit a Checklist for Verification of Lawful Presence within the United States (checklist), along with one of three different affidavits from which the applicant must choose. This will provide the basis for his or her lawful presence in the United States and a legible photocopy of one of the 16 secure and verifiable documents listed as defined by O.C.G.A. 50-36-2.

This documentation must be completed and submitted each time an individual takes a certification and/or re-certification course.

 

All documentation, including the list of secure and verifiable documents, can be found on our website by clicking this link.

Submitting the Documentation

Documentation may be submitted to the Commission via mail, prior to attending a course or at the certification/re-certification course. All Commission Approved Trainers will be Public Notaries. Individuals who elect to take an online re-certification course must complete and submit documentation to the Commission via mail.

An individual may attend a certification or re-certification course prior to having their citizenship verified. However, in the event that citizenship cannot be verified, the individual must understand that certification/re-certification will not be granted and the course fee will not be refunded.
