Training

Generally, we conduct a few training classes during the year at our Research Triangle Park, NC facility or Regional Offices.  These classes are scheduled as the need is identified. If you are looking for a class, you may also want to contact your EPA Regional Office, since they sometimes hold training classes that we may not be aware of at the national level.  Another source of AQS training for tribal users is the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) .

Online training courses on AQS and Discoverer are available

For more information: Contact the AQS Regional EPA contact or the NADG staff.

Instructions on how to use GoToWebinar

Materials used in past training classes are available below.  For additional material, please use the "Manuals and Guides" link in the sidebar.

Topic Content File Type File Size Date/Time
QA Redesign This training entry is a work in progress. It will contain training materials for the AQS QA redesign as they are made available. (i.e. check back again) The purpose of this project is to enhance AQS to support new monitoring program Quality Assurance / Quality Control (QA/QC) assessments (audits), while at the same time simplifying the submission of existing types of QA/QC information.
