Description

With the growing shift of Environmental Management actively moving towards strategies of reduction and prevention of pollution, managers, both in the government and in the private sector, need to develop new skills which will allow them to:

  • Identify opportunities for pollution prevention
  • Develop strategies for effecting change in businesses
  • Linking those strategies to available technologies

That is why this online Air Emission Control Technologies training is an excellent program for anyone who is looking for an online course that will aid them in gaining the skills that are needed for planning for pollution prevention as it applies to standards set forth by the Clean Air Act.

While in this online Air Emission Control Technologies course, students will be introduced to the environmental, technical, and legal aspects of pollution prevention.

Topics that are covered in this online Air Emission Control Technologies class include:

  • The Clean Air Act, including Title V permits
  • State Implementation Plans (SIP's)
  • National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS)
  • Pre-construction permits
  • New Source Review
  • Risk management planning

The level of information provides an overview for technical, non-technical, management, and other personnel needing to understand the fundamentals of the Title V permit process.

This course covers:

  • Preparation and submission of the permit application.
  • Identifying the purpose and requirements of Operating and Construction Permits as defined in Title V.
  • Definition and key terms associated with Title V compliance requirements including Potential to Emit, Actual Emissions, and Allowable Emissions.
  • Identifying the process for determining air-permitting compliance.
  • Identifying the types of air permits from degree of least to highest stringency. This includes permit exemption, construction permits, minor source permits, synthetic minor permits, and major source permits.
  • Maximum available control technology standards and compliance for pollution prevention.
  • Best available control technology standards and compliance for pollution prevention.
  • Overview of "Lowest available control technology" and "Reasonable available control technology."

This course includes 0.4 CEU credits.


Outcomes

Upon completion of this online Air Emission Control Technologies course, students will:

  • Be familiar with the national and state legislative mandates and their requirements for pollution prevention.
  • Be exposed to the dimension of multi-media pollution prevention assessment and analysis.

  • Identify and select appropriate control technology for existing and/or new facility.


Assessment

CEUs are awarded for participation in educational activities with professional associations, business and industry, occupational groups, and education. Workshops, seminars, training programs, conferences, institutes, and short courses may qualify. As a guideline, these activities must be developed for a specific clientele, with the purpose of professional updating, re-certification, re-licensing, and retraining/vocational adjustment, or new career orientation.

Participants earn one CEU for each 10 "contact" hours spent in an organized educational activity. According to requirements set by the National Task Force on Continuing Education, this activity must meet under the direction of an approved sponsor and qualified instructors.

Generally, a 60-minute clock hour is the standard of measurement for each contact hour. Any portion of an hour does not count toward CEUs. The total number of CEUs awarded depends on how much time a participant spends in a formal learning situation.
