The CEMS Academy was founded by a group of industry leaders in the field of air emissions monitoring. Their goal was to establish a positive, forward-thinking learning environment that was unlike anything else in the environmental field. The leaders of this initiative have a combined 30-years of problem-solving expertise in CEMS and related air monitoring activities. They share their considerable experience with anyone who is having trouble meeting their compliance duties. As a result, The CEMS Academy has developed a comprehensive, rapid-fire 1-day program that focuses on real-world difficulties and how to manage or avoid them completely. Come join us for an experience, unlike every other training you’ve ever had.
Register for the upcoming in-person training on March 30th and 31st in Tulsa, OK here.
