Diesel Emissions Regulation Classes for Business & Industry Offered at Lompoc Valley Center

Classes are taught by the CA Air Resources Board.

Allan Hancock College and the Central California Environmental Training Center, in collaboration with the California Air Resources Board (CARB), invite representatives of local businesses, industry, governmental agencies and the general public to attend two free courses at the college’s Lompoc Valley Center in October.  New and semi-experienced diesel fleet owners, managers, inspectors, public agency staff and environmental specialists are among targeted audiences.

The center is located at One Hancock Drive.  The classes will be held in room 3-109.  Limited space is available, and online preregistration is highly recommended.  A nominal daily parking fee of $2 will apply.

Diesel Exhaust After-Treatment Devices (CARB Course #511) will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 9.  Course topics include diesel particulates and their health effects; diesel emission control technology; diesel particulate filter (DPF) construction and application; and the maintenance necessary for successful DPF operation.  The course includes an optional field trip to see application of DPF technology at a representative facility to be announced at the time of the class.

In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicle Regulation Training (CARB Course #504) will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 noon on Wednesday, October 10.  Course topics include the vehicles and equipment subject to the Off-Road Regulation; requirements currently in effect; future compliance deadlines; and an overview of the Diesel Off-Road Online Reporting System (DOORS). 

To register for either or both of these free courses, visit http://www.arb.ca.gov/training/myarb/login.php.  The classes are taught by the Air Resources Board, not Hancock, and do not generate college credit.

The Central California Environmental Training Center (ETC), hosted at Allan Hancock College, helps small- to medium-sized businesses address, manage and comply with federal, state and local regulations concerning the environment, worker health and safety and homeland security.  The ETC coordinates and offers low-cost or free technical assistance and affordable training options, including customized, on-site instruction.  The center serves the greater South Central region, including San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura and Northern Los Angeles counties.  It is one of four regional ETCs throughout the state that is sponsored in part by the Industry Partnership Practices Unit, Workforce and Economic Development Division of the California Community Colleges System.

For more information about the CARB classes or the Central California ETC, contact Margaret Lau, director, at 805-735-3366 ext. 5276 or margaret.lau@hancockcollege.edu.
