Certified Permitting Professional Program Background

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (South Coast AQMD) is committed to providing high quality service to its permit applicants.  South Coast AQMD continually strives to improve permitting efficiency in order to provide timely service.  To help accomplish this, South Coast AQMD has established the Certified Permitting Professional (CPP) program, which is aimed to certify individuals that are knowledgeable in all aspects of permit application preparation including rule assessments, emission offset requirements, Best Available Control Technology (BACT) assessments, etc. 

Individuals who successfully pass the CPP examination earn the title "Certified Permitting Professional" and may retain the CPP license with annual renewal. Licensed CPPs are granted limited access to South Coast AQMD facility information through the Data Access System (DAS) to help prepare the permit application.  Licensed CPPs also have the opportunity to list their consulting services on South Coast AQMD's CPP Consultant List webpage, where it is made public to those seeking professional assistance with the permit application process. 

A CPP license, however, does not guarantee acceptance of a permit application or issuance of a permit.
