Wetland Delineation Certificate Series
Meet the demand for qualified wetland delineators! Developers, consultants, preservationists, and regulatory agencies all require skilled professionals who are able to identify the vegetation, soils, and hydrology that define wetlands. Delineators also need to have the practical field training, regulatory background, and other experience to support their findings. The US Army Corps of Engineers does not currenty offer a Wetland Delineation Certification, but Rutgers University nationally-recognized Wetland Delineation Certificate Series will teach you how to accurately delineate wetlands and provide you with the necessary qualifications.
