First-time Smoke School Attendees: We recommend viewing our EPA Method 9 lecture CD before attending the Philadelphia public smoke school. Information about our 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 Philly smoke school event. Orientation covers basic observation principles and is free with a paid field registration.
Aeromet public smoke schools are Federally-audited and meet or exceed Federal and Pennsylvania smoke school requirements. Upon completion of our smoke school, you will be certified to conduct EPA Method 9 observations.
