2018 Fall Richmond Smoke School

September 5, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm

The VTCA Smoke Schools are designed to produce qualified observers who can make plume opacity determinations that are accurate and minimally affected by variable field conditions.

The workshop consists of an optional half day classroom lecture and a half day Method 9 field-testing and certification.

You may attend the classroom, take the Method 9 certification field test and earn a certificate in one day.  EPA recommends the lecture for all new attendees and every third year thereafter.  You are required to retake the field test every six months to maintain Method 9 certification.
