First time attendees: Aeromet recommends viewing their EPA Method 9 lecture CD before attending the Mason City smoke school. Information about Aeromet's lecture CD can be found here. It is also recommended that you attend our First Time Opacity Observer Orientation which starts at 7:30 A.M. at each Mason City public smoke school.
IMPORTANT: Iowa DNR requires that all smoke school attendees observe 500 opacity readings as part of their initial certification. This is a one-time only requirement. Aeromet performs the 500 observations for initial certification at the Des Moines public smoke school. There is no additional charge for this service. Please call Aeromet with any questions regarding this Iowa-specific requirement.
For information about a private smoke school at your facility in the Mason City area, please click here or call Gabe Keilholz at 573-636-6393 for a no-obligation proposal. Private EPA Method 9 Certification courses are available throughout Iowa and the U.S. and can offer significant cost-savings over public smoke schools depending on the number of attendees you have. Aeromet's public and private smoke schools meet all Federal and Iowa state requirements.
