It may not lead to any diploma you’ll hang above a desk, but the most powerful state environmental body is offering to help truck owners learn how it enforces diesel regulations.

The California Air Resources Board is making courses available for diesel truck owners to learn about exhaust after-treatment devices and how to comply with the Golden State’s web of truck emissions regulations.

CARB’s Course 511 will teach diesel engine particulate matter and NOx production and control strategies, diesel particulate filter theory, and the application of various types of particulate filters. The course will be offered from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. July 10 in Lompoc; and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 11 in Ventura.
