To maintain your ARB verifier accreditation, you must be re-accredited by taking ARB verifier training in March 2012. You will not be allowed to provide verification services in 2012 until you attend verifier training and pass the exam. If you have already submitted your application, you will receive information regarding training registration soon. If you have not submitted an application, please do so as soon as possible. Please submit a current resume including relevant verification information, as well. If we need more information than what you have initially provided, we will notify you. Here is the information we have already sent: ARB will be conducting verifier accreditation training in March 2012 for currently accredited verifiers. The training is required if you intend to maintain your ARB-accreditation as a greenhouse gas verifier in 2012 and after. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding training, or if you need more time to submit the application. Course overview Two identical training sessions are offered. Each training session contains one required training session, and three optional sector training courses. Course 1 is the general verification training focusing on the changes to reporting and verification in the revised Greenhouse Gas Mandatory Reporting Rule. This includes updates to electricity generation, cogeneration and stationary fuel combustion. Course 1 is required for all verifiers that want to maintain their accreditation.
