This online training series is not an "informational course," but is a rigorous course composed of a series of modules in which participants complete work products, guided by ITEP instructional staff and other course participants. Each module contains informational presentations via webinar, homework assignments, interactive discussions, and on-on-one assistance.

This course is designed only for those tribes needing to generate an emissions inventory in 2017. Enrollment must be pre-approved by ITEP staff. The 2017 instructor-led training schedule is below. Please email Angelique at Angelique.Luedeker@nau.edu to determine if you are eligible to enroll at this time or if you are interested in the self-paced option.

Emissions Inventory (EI) Fundamentals online training series is equivalent to 5.0 continuing education units (CEUs) and requires approximately 50 hours of total learning time over the course of seven weeks to develop an emissions inventory. Weekly webinars will be held on 1-10-17 through 2-14-17 on Tuesdays at 9:00am PT | 10:00am MT | 11:00am CT | 12:00pm ET.  Participants will complete a level 4 EI (a level 4 EI does not include gathering activity data or calculating emissions, but only lists sources and pollutants using data already 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 online training series is equivalent to 12 continuing education units (CEUs) and requires approximately 120 hours of total learning time over the course of thirteen weeks to begin developing a Level 2 or 3 emissions inventory. Emissions Inventory (EI) Advanced weekly webinars will be held on Tuesdays beginning 3-7-17 and going through 5-30-17 (excluding 4-18-17 and 5-2-17) at 9:00am PT | 10:00am MT | 11:00am CT | 12:00pm ET.  During this series, participants will begin working on a level 2 or 3 EI. This online training series 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 to begin developing a Level 2 or 3 EI. Participants should have completed the EI Fundamentals training or have prior experience developing EIs.

This online training is not an "informational course," but is a rigorous course composed of eleven modules in which participants complete work products, guided by ITEP instructional staff. Modules contain presentations via webinar, homework assignments, interactive discussions, and one-on-one assistance. 

This course is designed for tribal environmental professionals who are currently monitoring or collecting data for at least one criteria pollutant or for meteorological conditions. It is not possible to take the course without having criteria air pollutant or meteorological data files from their air monitoring stations as the assignments are built around each individual’s data. Demonstrations use example data, but all assignments are individualized to each participant. Participants are expected to have an intermediate-level working knowledge of Microsoft Windows. Although the course is structured around a Microsoft Access database, the database is form-driven and user-friendly; therefore, no previous Access experience is necessary.

Tribal Data Toolbox weekly webinars will be held on Wednesdays beginning 4-11-18 and going through 6-27-18 (excluding 5-16-18) at 9:00am PT | 10:00am MT | 11:00am CT | 12:00pm ET. Webinars will be recorded and over 50 additional videos cover every Toolbox function. During this training, participants will import continuous pollutant and met data, begin entering data from quality control checks performed on their air monitoring samplers, validate their data, generate reports, charts and AQS-formatted files. 

This online training is equivalent to 8 continuing education units (CEUs) and requires approximately 80 hours of total learning time over the course of twelve weeks.
