The Association of Environmental Professionals invites you to register for the CEQA Essentials Workshop, a 4-hour webinar offered on two different dates for your convenience (both dates offer the same curriculum). The curriculum provides a basic understanding of the fundamentals of the California Environmental Quality Act and the State Guidelines and includes practice pointers and case studies for early stage practitioners. These webinars feature a curriculum developed specifically for people involved in the environmental review process including consultants, regulators, applicants, or industry professionals, and will benefit those new to the field as well as practicing professionals who would like a refresher on the essentials (AICP-CM credits available). The webinars will be abbreviated to 4 hours of content and interactive Q&A plus networking time thereafter. The webinar recordings will be made available to attendees afterward for reference.
Topics will include:
• Understanding the Context and Legislative Intent of the Statute and Guidelines
• Guiding Principles and the CEQA Process
• How to Prepare Effective Project Descriptions and Initial Studies
• Mitigated/Negative Declaration Documents
• Types of EIR Documents
• How to Stay Current
