Our smoke school program has undergone a Federal audit and is approved in New York and recognized by NYSDEC. You will be certified to conduct EPA Method 9 Observations after successful completion of any of our public New York smoke schools. We return to each public location every 6 months to ensure your certification does not expire.
If you are a first-time smoke school attendee, we strongly recommend reviewing our visible emission observation (VEO) lecture CD before attending a New York public smoke school. 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. at each Aeromet public smoke school event.
