Course #310: CalEPA Basic Inspector Academy

The California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) Basic Inspector Academy (BIA) is a free, three-and-a-half-day training class open to State, local, and tribal environmental enforcement staff. BIA gives environmental inspectors across California the core skills necessary to conduct thorough, effective inspections to implement environmental programs operating under the CalEPA umbrella. BIA provides students with knowledge about key concepts that form the foundation for effective environmental enforcement, as well as experience. Students apply what is learned in class as they complete mock-inspection and court-testimony exercises. To learn more about this class and the upcoming schedule, please view the Basic Inspector Academy Flyer. Advance registration is required; walk-ins will not be allowed!

A prerequisite to Course #310 is the online Fundamental Inspector Course #300 (FIC). This FIC course takes approximately four to six hours to complete, and covers the role of the inspector; the science of environmental pollution; an overview of environmental law; and CalEPA agencies' roles and responsibilities. FIC must be completed before enrolling in BIA. For registration information about this prerequisite course, please visit: Fundamental Inspector Course Online.
