The California Air Resources Board is offering two classes to help diesel truck owners understand how to comply with the state’s multiple regulations on diesel emissions.

Course 520 is “How to comply with CARB Diesel Regulations.” An email message from CARB to subscribers of agency updates says CARB will hold the class in various California cities this spring and early summer including:

  • May 29 in Bishop from 8:30 to noon;
  • May 30 in Lancaster from 8:30 to noon;
  • June 3 in Truckee from 1 to 4:30 p.m.;
  • June 14 in Diamond Bar from 9 a.m. to 12:30;
  • June 30 in Greenville from 1 to 4:30 p.m.; and
  • June 25 in San Jose from 1 to 4:30 p.m.

Course 520 will review CARB inspection processes and the consequences of not complying, and “explain how to comply with CARB’s regulations affecting most diesel vehicles and equipment operating in the state,” CARB said in the email.

CARB is also offering a class that looks at diesel particulate filters.

Class 511.2, “Overview of CARB Diesel Emission Control Strategies,” will be offered at these times and places:

  • May 30 in Morgan Hill from 6 to 8:30 p.m.;
  • May 30 in San Leandro from 3:30 to 6 p.m.,
  • June 4 in Anderson from 5:30 to 8 p.m.; and
  • June 5 in Sacramento from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

To help reach truck owners who aren’t able to be physically present at the courses, CARB staff is working to edit and update a recorded web version of Class 520 available at this link, a CARB spokeswoman said in late April.
