Meet Your Instructor
Charles R. Harman, P.W.S.
A Principal Ecologist and Regulatory Services Branch Manager at Wood Environment & Infrastructure Solutions, Inc, Charles Harman has 30 years of experience in wetlands management, including delineation, evaluation, permitting, and mitigation. He has applied for a variety of natural resource management permits at both the state and federal levels and we are lucky to have him teach from his experiences.
“This type of course was way overdue. It is a serious course for LSRPs and non-LSRPs that can be used immediately. The slides were in-depth with photographs that complimented the text. They can be used by LSRPs as a how-to-handbook with references to other required information. The instructor’s real-life experience and technical expertise in all facets of wetland delineation, permitting, mitigation, and restoration shone through.”
On instructor Charles Harman: “Very informative. I appreciate his perspective as a wetland scientist who has prepared permits for site remediation and has a ton of experience.”
Most useful aspect of the course: “Discussion of permits/permit application process.”
