Upcoming Virtual Classes

The Level 1 class is intended for federal, tribal, state/province, and local agency employees, water managers, decision-makers, border/lake personnel, marina operators, concessioners, commercial boat transport operators, non-governmental organizations, and other stakeholders. The Level 1 (inspection) and Level 2 (decontamination) combination classes include an overview of education and outreach, AIS biology and impacts, watercraft anatomy and function, inspection procedures, decontamination standards, and strategies for implementation.
The Level 1/Level 2 combination class is taught over three days in a virtual Zoom setting. Participants wishing to gain Level 1 certification in inspection will only attend the first two days. Individuals seeking level 2 certification in both inspection and decontamination must attend all three days of the online class.
Individuals with a Level 1 (inspection) certification should leave the training prepared to educate the public about AIS and perform watercraft inspection according to the national science-based standards and procedures.
Successful completion of the course will be based on demonstrated skills, knowledge, and attitude, along with a passing score of 70% or better on an electronic quiz at the end of the course. A digital certificate will be emailed to participants upon completion of the class.
