Industrial Air Pollution Monitoring - Short Courses

Course details

This three day short course will provide a broad overview of the whole subject and is suitable for those needing an introduction to the field and for those wishing to update their knowledge. The course will also provide an opportunity to meet providers of equipment and services.
For stack testers requiring personal certification under the Environment Agency's MCERTS scheme the sessions on day one are particularly relevant to MCERTS level 2 (team leaders) and day two is particularly relevant to MCERTS Technical Endorsements 1 (particles), 2 (trac species) and 3 (manual methods for gases). Sessions on day three are particularly relevant to MCERTS Technical Endorsement 4 (instrumental methods for gases).

Day one focuses on general management issues, including legislation, compliance with authorisation conditions, quality assurance and control. It will also provide perspectives from all sides – regulators, industrial emitters and contract source testing organisations.

Days two and three focus on measurement and analytical techniques. Gaseous and particulate emissions will be covered and both extractive sampling
and in situ methods will be discussed. The course ends with a workshop on calculation methods which is relevant to everyone involved
in emissions monitoring.

The 2017 programme will be available approximately 3 months before the start of the course, however you can view the 2016 course leaflet and programme in the left hand column of this page.
