Course #310: Cal/EPA Basic Inspector Academy
The Basic Inspector Academy (BIA) is designed to teach core knowledge and skills to encourage cross-media awareness needed to conduct quality inspections to environmental agency inspectors. Enrollment in this BIA Course is restricted to ONLY environmental agency inspectors and other government/tribal personnel. This 3 1/2 day classroom training covers inspection overview, access & entry, inspection & search warrants, interviewing skills, elements of a violation, evidence to prove a violation, environmental sampling, report writing, enforcement options; and testimony skills. The course also incorporates an interactive mock inspection exercise. A prerequisite to Course #310 is the online Fundamental Inspector Course #300 (FIC). The online FIC course is approximately four to six hours and must be completed before you attend the classroom training. The FIC covers the role of the inspector; the science of environmental pollution; an overview of environmental law; and CalEPA agencies' roles and responsibilities. To enroll in the online class, please go to Fundamental Inspector Course Online.
