ghg-ver -- Verification Accreditation Training for New Verifiers—Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting Regulation

Posted: 04 Mar 2014 18:22:29
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) is conducting verifier
accreditation training and exams for new verifiers March 10-14,
2014 in Pasadena and April 7-11 in Sacramento.  
There are several seats remaining in each training. Please let us
know if you meet the required experience to become a lead
verifier and are interested in applying for accreditation to
practice verification of Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Emissions Data
Reports. To participate in this accreditation training and exam,
candidates must demonstrate four or more years as a project
manager or lead person in the development of GHG or other air
emissions inventories or as a lead environmental data or
financial auditor in the private sector. Two of the four years
may be graduate-level work. Candidates will be prescreened for
required education and professional experience. Please contact
ghgverify@arb.ca.gov or call Suzanne Hambleton at 916.323.2308 if
you have questions. Additional information is provided below.

Course Overview
The training consists of one required course and three optional
sector-specialty courses. Course 1 is the general verification
training focusing on the reporting and verification requirements
in the Greenhouse Gas Mandatory Reporting Regulation. Course 1 is
required for all verifier candidates pursuing ARB verifier
accreditation.  Course 1 covers verification techniques as well
as reporting requirements for stationary fuel combustion,
electricity generating units, cogeneration operations, and
covered product data. The transactions specialty, Course 2,
covers techniques for verifying electric power entities,
suppliers of petroleum products, biofuels, natural gases,
liquefied petroleum gas and carbon dioxide. The oil and gas
sector systems specialty, Course 3, covers techniques for
verifying petroleum refineries, hydrogen production and petroleum
and natural gas production systems. The process emissions
specialty, Course 4, covers techniques for verifying seven
specific industries (cement production, glass production, lime
manufacturing, pulp and paper manufacturing, iron and steel
production, nitric acid production, and lead production) which
produce process emissions.

Verifier candidates are encouraged to attend all three optional
sector specific courses.  However, ARB will only accredit
verifiers that have at least two years of professional experience
related to the sector in which they are seeking accreditation
(MRR section 95132(b)(5)).
