Fundamentals of Enforcement Course (Smoke School)



EL CENTRO – This three-day course, February 5 through the 7th, 2013, is a basic overview of air pollution emphasizing Visible Emissions Evaluation or VEE.

Participants will be trained to perform EPA Method 9 for reading visible emissions and will have the opportunity to obtain Visible Emissions Evaluation (VEE) Certification. This certification is valid for six months and must be renewed by attending DAY VEE (#100.1) and NIGHT VEE (#100.2) Certification Courses. Additional topics include Air Pollution and Its Effects, Meteorology, Water Vapor Plumes, Air Pollution Law, Air Compliance Inspection Procedures and Documentation.

Completion of Fundamental of Enforcement (FOE) is required for anyone who seeks VEE Certification from the California Air Resources Board. It is also a requirement for anyone who seeks to be listed under VEE with the California Air Resources Board Independent Contractor’s Program. This is to ensure all CARB certified VEE readers meet our standards of certification and understand the California VEE laws.

The three-day course will take place at The Imperial County Farm Bureau Board Room located at 1000 Broadway, El Centro, CA 92243.

Remember to bring 2 blue or black ink pens, a clipboard and, if desired, a chair for field work.
