Emission regulations 
classes offered in Lompoc


During the month of August, Allan Hancock College is offering two free courses at the college’s Lompoc Valley center. The college and the Central California Environmental Training Center are offering the classes in collaboration with the California Air Resources Board.

Fundamentals of Enforcement, or “Smoke School,” is a three-day course that provides a basic overview of air pollution. Participants will be trained to perform the Environmental Protection Agency’s Method 9 for reading visible emissions and have the opportunity to obtain a Visible Emissions Evaluation certification. The class starts on Tuesday, Aug. 13, and will continue through Aug. 15.

How to Comply with CARB Diesel Regulations will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 27. The course reviews the truck inspection process, discusses the consequences of non-compliance, and explains how to comply with the regulations affecting most diesel vehicles and equipment operating in the state.

To register for either or both of the emissions classes, visit or call (916) 323-1168 for assistance. The classes are taught by the Air Resources Board, not Hancock, and don’t generate college credits. For more info about the classes, contact Margaret Lau at 735-3366, Ext. 5276, or
