COURSE OVERVIEW AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES DRAFT AGENDA
Those completing this course will gain a basic understanding of the different types and the operating characteristics of control devices that are available for specific particulate emission sources. Attendees will be able to perform regulatory reviews involving the following elements of particulate emissions and control. The curriculum for the four (4) day course will include:
- Review of Basic Concepts
- Particulate Matter Formation and Regulation
- Particle Sizing
- Particle Collection Mechanisms
- Settling Chambers
- Fabric Filters
- Wet Scrubbers
- Electrostatic Precipitators
- Hood and Fans
This course is a basic course that is designed for individuals within a regulatory agency whose role is to evaluate particulate emission sources for permitting and to determine the ongoing compliance status of such emission sources. This class is intended for new permit and compliance engineers and scientists who are responsible for permitting and compliance activities.
Engineering/scientific degree or successful completion of Course RE:100 – Basic Concepts in Environmental Sciences (7 modules), and six months of equivalent course/work experience.
