Tribal Air Quality

Emissions Inventory Fundamentals - 2017

Description

This course is designed for tribes needing to generate an emissions inventory. This online training series is a rigorous course composed of modules in which participants complete work products, guided by ITEP instructional staff and other course participants. Each module contains video presentations, homework assignments, discussions, and one-on-one assistance that will walk participants through completing a Level 4 Emissions Inventory.

Enrollment must be pre-approved by ITEP staff. Please email Angelique at Angelique.Luedeker@nau.edu to determine if you are eligible to enroll at this time.

Emissions Inventory (EI) Fundamentals is equivalent to 5.0 continuing education units (CEUs) and requires approximately 50 hours of total learning time to develop a Level 4 Emissions Inventory. A level 4 EI does not include gathering activity data or calculating emissions, but only lists sources and pollutants using data generated by and obtained from EPA/nearby jurisdictions; this is also a necessary first step toward more comprehensive EIs, and for those who wish to continue to the next series, EI Advanced. 

Emissions Inventory (EI) Advanced is equivalent to 12 continuing education units (CEUs) and requires approximately 120 hours of total learning time to develop a Level 2 or 3 Emissions Inventory. This online training is for participants who need to gather data from sources on tribal lands (for example, amount of gasoline sold at gas stations, cords of wood used in wood stoves, miles of unpaved road, gallons of propane purchased to heat community center, etc.) and use the data to calculate emissions from those sources. Participants should have completed the EI Fundamentals training or have prior experience developing EIs.
