|The Uniform Air Quality Training Program (UAQTP) is a series of
14 sections providing an introduction to
air pollution control and enforcement. The program is intended for new, entry-level
stationary source inspectors, regulatory agency staff, and environmental specialists
in business and government. You will learn the basics of air pollution history,
the evolution of air pollution laws and regulations, control equipment,
and inspection procedures associated with proper compliance inspections. You are
encouraged to ask questions and share your experiences.
The entire series must be completed for a certificate of
completion to be issued. More information about each of the 14 sections is listed
here. You are encouraged to complete this series before taking
our 200 and 300-series courses. We do not offer training on visible emissions
evaluation (VEE) in this series. If you would like to become a VEE certified "smoke reader,"
please take course 100,
Fundamentals of Enforcement (AKA: "Smoke School").
