COURSE INFO PROVIDER: Soil Hub LLC
COURSE TITLE: Fundamental Hydric Soils

INSTRUCTORS Mike Callahan
Dr. John Wah
Joe Valentine
Gary Jellick

COURSE DESCRIPTION The advent of the Hydric Soil Indicators into three-parameter wetland delineations has raised the bar on understanding the role of soils in wetland determinations. However, like any advance in scientific application, the divide between intent and application can be wide as field practitioners struggle to comprehend the intention of the many-nuanced and often-updated hydric soil indicator definitions. In this training series, students will learn advanced soil science concepts from professional soil scientists to bridge the knowledge gap between reading what an indicator says and applying it in the field.
Students will complete online classroom study through our Soil Hub learning modules. These modules can be completed all at once or the student can stop and start at their own pace with the option to save their progress and return later to complete each lesson. During the online classroom portion of the course, students will advance their technical foundation with in-depth study on the science behind hydric soils and the hydric soil indicators. Finally, students will get practical in-field training in hydric soil description and interpretation techniques by spending valuable field time with our soil science instructors at various locations across the region.

Credit Points: 0.80
