CPESC is Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control. CPESC has been strongly promoted by Malaysia Stormwater Organisation (MSO). This topic has been a HOT topic in country since 2017. Somehow, many of our engineers do not know the details of CPESC. What is CPESC? What is CPESC about? Where do we find CPESC? Actually, CPESC specialized in planning and design of erosion and sediment control. It is to provide professional credentials for individuals who are working to manage erosion and sediment control issues for land disturbing activities. The certification is issued by EnviroCert International, Inc(ECI) in United Stated. Initially, engineers need to go to United Stated to sit for CPESC exam. Now, MSO is managing the CPESC certification in Malaysia. Malaysia is one of the countries which EnviroCert allowed to sit for exam outside of United Stated. CPESC is an international certification recognized in many countries like United Stated, Canada, Australia and Malaysia.  The first CPESC Review Classes and Exam was held in Malaysia in August 2006. Currently there are around 400 CPESC certified professional in Malaysia.  
As the MSO has a vision to make our country “clean”, ESCP is one of the requirements in preparation of infrastructure plan. With the rapid development in our country, increase of the impervious surface in our catchment is leading to increase in the volume and rate of stormwater runoff.  The development activities contributed a significant amount of pollutants into receiving waters. As a result, it has become one of the reasons that cause our natural receiving water body like river been polluted tremendously. Our natural streams become more polluted throughout years. In order to preserve our natural environment especially for our next generation, pollution control is a must. A study from Nationwide Urban Runoff Program in US has found that the main contributors of pollutants are from stormwater instead of industrial waste. The pollutants collected from stormwater contained many conventional and toxic pollutants regulated from proceed of point source such as industrial waste. Therefore, there is a need to mitigate this stormwater pollution from the beginning of a project construction. One of the steps to get it done will be the proper preparation of ESCP design. Planning and design is the first step of control erosion and sediment.

This is a quick preview course on CPESC in which speakers will give participants a glance on CPESC. What can CPESC do? Why is CPESC important? What CPESC can do for Malaysia? How to go through the program of CPESC and be certified? How CPESC can enhance design in ESCP? Who is the organizer of CPESC exam? How to apply and sit for CPESC exam?


This talk is to provide some guidance on how CPESC can help engineers. The process of steps to become a CPESC certifier. What to be learned to prepare for the exam.
•    Scope of Erosion and Sediment control
•    CPESC concept.
•    The principle of erosion and sediment control.
•    How to adopt CPESC requirements to comply with our Malaysia requirements-MSMA.
•    How to effectively control erosion and sediment control.
•    The purpose of computation of RULSE and MUSLE.
•    Why ESCP is a dynamic works.

Ir. Chee Shai Choon is a CPESC certified professional who leads a group of software developers in C & S Software Solutions Sdn Bhd which incorporated in  year 2006. His clients mainly in Malaysia, somehow, where else there are some clients in Singapore, Brunei and Vietnam. He is specializing in stormwater where he has developed a “core MSMA suite” which covers all the Chapters in MSMA 2nd edition. He has completed the whole MSMA2 into digital edition. He is the software developer of the Infrastructure software which provided the most comprehensive civil engineering software. The product of Erosion and Sediment Control Plan(myESCP),OSD/Pond(IntelliDrain),3D Earthworks(Zeon Earth), Detention Pond & OSD Design(ZeonStorm), XSeries modules such as Water reticulation(xWater), drainage network(xDrain), sewerage network(xSewer). Other software such as Sediment Basin and Singapore Pub design software. Further with the CPESC certified professional, he has acquired substantial of knowledge in ESCP which lead to one of his software is called myESCP. It comprises of erosion and sediment control facilities such as Check Dam Diversion Channel, Silt Fence. These facilities which are compliance to MSMA 2nd edition of chapter 12. The CPESC knowledge has led him to further on the ESCP development. This year will be his 13 years anniversary on his computer business. He is keeps on update his knowledge especially in stormwater field where enable him to invent more values in engineering products. With his continuity development of products in stormwater, he has further acquired significant amount of experience in this field.  It can be from direct feedback from software client i.e. consultant engineers, his own involvement in stormwater projects, and during his events in stormwater. As a result, the cumulative skill and knowledge which covered from the design process involved up to construction and completion of stormwater works. It would be one of the best sharing with participants. He is also a civil engineer with good technical knowledge in engineering concepts. He has accumulated 21 years of his experience in field of IT and engineering design. His official website: Currently his company has an international collaboration with three international engineering software companies from Europe i.e. Bricsys(Recommended alternative CAD) BricsCAD BIM, Computer Control System(Bridges)-Greece and Ingeciber,S.A(FEM) Spain. Along with his involvement on IT, he had conducted a number of talks/training in various organizations like IEM, JOS in JPS Ampang, Wawasan Professional Training Centre in KL. Talks & Seminar.

Ir. Chong Chee Yen obtained his BE Hon. in Civil Engineering from UTM and MS (Structures) from UPM. After 5 years of practice as design engineer, he had joined INTI International University as lecturer in 2005. In 2007, he joined a consultancy firm in Seremban as Director. In 2011, he has established his own consultancy practice. He is a corporate member of Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) and Technological Association of Malaysia (TAM), a registered professional engineer with practicing certificate and a Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC). He has vast experiences in the engineering consultancy for various projects in Negeri Sembilan, Selangor and Melaka. His other areas of interest are structural assessment for building structure and erosion and sediment control plan. He also acts as expert witness in courts for civil and structural engineering matters. Currently, he serves as Chairman of TAM Negeri Sembilan branch and Hon. Treasurer of IEM Negeri Sembilan branch.
