Course Description: Observations of compliance performance emission tests are an important part of any air pollution enforcement program.  Data obtained during these tests are used to determine compliance with regulatory standards or to determine baseline operating conditions for a source.  During this one-day course, we present the basic principles of source test observation (STO) and the fundamentals of source testing methods, including Method 5, sampling train and procedures.  We also discuss sample recovery observations, procedural inspections, calculations, report writing and QA techniques.  Students will participate in a Method 5 sampling train “mock inspection” and receive hands-on training.
