It may not earn you a degree you can hang on the wall, but the California Air Resources Board is offering a free class to help truck owners comply with California’s ever-changing emissions regulations.
CARB has begun a new round of the three-hour class 520 “How to Comply with CARB Diesel Regulations.” The course reviews the inspection process, gives consequences of non-compliance, and explains how to comply with CARB’s regulations for most diesel vehicles and equipment operating in California.
The class is offered Tuesday, April 30, in Sonora from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Classes will be held from 1 to 4:30 p.m. in Nevada City on May 6, from 4 to 6 p.m. May 7 in Redding, and from 8:30 a.m. to noon May 8 in San Luis Obispo. The course will be offered in Santa Rosa on May 16, in Ukiah on May 17, in Bishop on May 29, and in Lancaster on May 30.
A full listing of course offerings and a registry is available by clicking here.
To help reach truck owners who aren’t able to be physically present at the courses, a CARB spokeswoman said CARB staff is working to edit and update a recorded web version of Class 520 available at this link.
In addition to class 520, CARB is also offering class 511 for exhaust after-treatment devices.
