2020 Fall Abingdon Smoke School

September 19 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

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 online half day classroom lecture and a half day Method 9 field-testing and certification.  Due to facility restrictions, the classroom portion will be done online, and only first-time attendees will be able to participate in the classroom portion of the training.  The online classroom portion will be held every Monday between now and the scheduled Smoke Schools.  You will be sent information to register with Compliance Assurance for the online classroom portion after you sign up for the training. – Update the online classroom portion is sold out.

 All field-testing participants will be required to wear a mask and follow social distancing requirements during the field-testing session.  Also, each participant will be required to bring their own clipboard and pen for testing purposes.
