Our smoke school program has undergone a Federal audit and is approved in Maryland. You will be certified to conduct EPA Method 9 Observations after successful completion of our Maryland smoke school. We return to each public smoke school location every 6 months to ensure your certification does not expire.
If you are a first-time smoke school attendee, we recommend reviewing our visible emission observation lecture CD before attending a public smoke school in Maryland. Information about our lecture CD can be found here. Additionally, it is recommended that you attend our First Time Opacity Observer Orientation which starts at 7:30 A.M. on the morning of the public smoke school.
