Benefits of CPMSM

Benefits of CPMSM™ Qualified Members on Your Team

The CPMSM program addresses all areas typically involved in the overall coordination of an MS4 stormwater management program (SWMP). The two key components of this program include: management and implementation of the SWMP. The CPMSM program also recognizes and reiterates the importance of identifying and supplementing the national requirements with the requirements of the various state programs. Inclusion of a CPMSM on your team helps to ensure the highest quality of project management and stormwater protection for your project. The CPMSM program includes a formal application approval process to screen individuals for proper education and experience, a skills exam to test individuals on their knowledge of the subject matter, and a continuing education requirement to ensure maintenance of stormwater management skills for certified individuals.
