Agora is pleased to offer two back-to-back CEMS training programs in St. Louis this Fall presented by Agora's CEM experts to address the Acid Rain, NSPS, MATS Rule and GHG related CEMS requirements that are applicable to the electric utility industry.  The comprehensive training program includes two separate training options that you may select independently or together if you want to participate in the full 3½-day training program.   The first two-day option addresses the Part 75 and Part 60 CEMS requirements while the second 1½-day option addresses the MATS Rule and emerging CEMS regulations affecting utility sources.

NOTE: This comprehensive training program can be specifically structured to meet an individual company's needs and performed at the client's site.  Please contact Agora for more details.

The training program is conducted in a classroom presentation format that includes updates on the Acid Rain Program and other regulatory issues of interest to electric utilities and other industries using CEMS.  The focus of the course will be on CEM fundamentals and how to successfully administer QA/QC required under the applicable regulations.  The two back to back offerings provide flexibility building on our traditional 3-day CEMS training programs but also reflecting the many proposed reporting and regulatory changes now affecting utilities.  Click here to download a copy of the training brochure and registration.

[Note: We do not plan to offer a virtual version of the training in conjunction with the Fall CEMS Course.  However, please contact us if you are interested in our virtual or in-person training options.]
