Certification Programs & Training

SCAQMD has introduced several certification programs that are intended to increase confidence in products and services used by the regulated community (permitted facilities) that promote clean air. Products such as solvents or commercial cleaners must meet specific environmental qualifications to become certified. The certified permitting professionals are required to demonstrate expertise in the preparation of permit applications by passing an exam, thus ensuring permit applications will be complete and in compliance with permitting requirements.

In addition to certification programs, SCAQMD provides compliance assistance training to enhance understanding of applicable air quality regulations, introduce new control technologies and assist industry with achieving and maintaining compliance with federal, state and local clean air requirements.
