CARB's Air Quality Instructors make up a uniquely qualified team of air pollution specialists and engineers with many combined years of experience in air quality control and management. We are committed to providing first-rate training that draws from direct experience in stationary source permitting, compliance investigations, source testing, and regulatory enforcement.

Our course catalog includes a comprehensive list of courses, from introductory material for the entry-level professional to complex technical and regulatory courses for the more experienced specialist. We cover air pollution history, evaluation of visible emissions, analysis of industrial processes, theory and application of emission controls, waste stream, reduction, and more. A wide variety of teaching tools are used, including online and in class instruction, subject-matter guest speakers, hands-on classroom exercises, and off-site field visits to representative facilities.

The Enforcement Symposium 2019 theme was Looking Forward: The Evolution of Enforcement. Presentations from this and prior symposia are located at the link above.
