Abstract: This presentation will introduce the Water Environment Federations National Green Infrastructure Certification Program (NGICP).  Green Infrastructure has been in our Stormwater lexicon for nearly a generation with supported by studies, research, code updates, conferences and an awesome core or practitioners integrating ground breaking solutions to clean and infiltrate stormwater and improve overall water quality.  There continues to be a missing link limiting the success of Green Infrastructure as a leading solution in stormwater technologies.  The National Green Infrastructure Certification Program (NGICP) provides the base-level skill set needed for entry-level workers to properly construct, inspect and maintain green stormwater infrastructure (GI).  Designed to meet international best practice standards, NGICP is a tool that can be used to meet a wide range of needs, including professional development for existing GI professionals and as part of a larger workforce development to provide candidates with the technical skills necessary to enter the green workforce and earn a livable wage.

Bio: Scott Radford is a landscape architect with Stantec specializing in design, construction and training of Green Infrastructure Stormwater Technologies.  He has served as the lead landscape architect on complex projects coordinating multi-disciplinary teams and helping facilitate public and client outreach meetings.  Successful outdoor spaces can be as simple a single tree surrounded by a wildflower field or small plaza, a roof downspout draining to an infiltration rain garden as illustrated in the design he developed for the city of Anaheim water recycling facility; as complex as the 15 acre green roof and bio- infiltration swale at the city of Seattle Maple Leaf Reservoir Park, or as intricate as fitting a roadside rain garden in the heart of the city core in San Francisco.  His innovative stormwater and garden designs have been featured in local news articles and has been featured in tours of residential rain garden design solutions. Scott is a certified erosion and sediment control lead and an active member of the ASLA and the Water Environment Federation (WEF).
