Course Overview and Learning Objectives

MARAMA is interested in training member staff to inspect and permit oil and gas facilities in their states. After the training, participants should be able to identify equipment used at oil and gas facilities, identify fault conditions that might result in emissions to the air, estimate air emissions from the equipment and generally understand the potential environmental impact of air emissions from oil and gas facilities. Attendees will be able to state the difference between conventional oil and gas facilities and unconventional, or “fracked” facilities.

Target Audience

The audience for the classroom portion of the course is planning, enforcement, and permitting state/local/federal agency staff. We expect to have both new and experienced staff participate. Total attendance at each of the two training events is expected to be as many as 60 people.

REGISTRATION

Please register online at www.APTI-learn.net by September 13, 2019. Both courses will be on APTI-Learn, so please register for the date/location that will work out best for you.

NOTE: There is NO registration fee for state and local employees to attend this training. A nominal fee will be charged for Federal employees.
