Agora's most popular training package is a comprehensive, 3-day CEMS Users Training Program presented by Agora's CEM experts which addresses Acid Rain, NSPS and MATS Rule CEM requirements that are applicable to the electric utility industry, and we are once again happy to present the course in-person near our home office in Raleigh, North Carolina.  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 Part 75 and Part 60 CEMS QA/QC programs.  In addition, compliance requirements of the EGU MATS Rule will be covered.  Click here to download a copy of the training brochure and registration.
