Air Pollution Control Management Training Course

Air Pollution Control Management Training Course Description

The air pollution control management training course gives you an introductory view of all major, practical aspects of air pollution control.

The air pollution control management training is a multidisciplinary course consisting of science, technology, and regulatory aspects associated with the air pollution control.

The air pollution control management training course help you gain sufficient information on health and environmental effects of air pollution, air pollution meteorology, air quality management, ambient air quality monitoring, measurement and control of emissions, pollution prevention, laws and regulations, emission inventories, compliance and enforcement, and other related topics to effectively tackle air pollution related and impacted projects in the future.


The air pollution control management training is a 2-day course designed primarily for those individuals who require a general yet comprehensive knowledge of the principals and practices associated with air pollution control.

Training Objectives

Upon the completion of the air pollution control management training course, the attendees are able to:

  • Describe common air pollution issues
  • Recognize the major air pollutants and their effects on human health and environment
  • Understand the regulations and policies
  • Discuss the techniques, methods, and strategies of controlling and removing air pollutants
  • Understand the principals and fundamental concepts governing particulate matter and gas-phase pollutant chemistry and physics
  • Apply knowledge of the theories and practices of air pollution control to the design of realistic particulate matter and gas-phase emission reduction systems.
