Truck owners and others in the freight industry have an opportunity to learn California emissions enforcement techniques, maintenance on emissions devices and other information during a series of upcoming courses run by the state’s Air Resources Board.

A course dealing with CARB’s Truck and Bus Rule will be accessible remotely to anyone with Internet capabilities.

To help educate the industry about CARB’s most expensive truck rule, the air quality agency offers Course 521: “How to Comply with the Truck and Bus Regulation.” The course includes discussions on applicability, exemptions, extensions, credits, good faith effort, reporting, and requirements for brokers and dispatchers.

Course 521 will be offered as a webinar from 9 to 11 a.m. both July 15 and July 23. The course will also be available in-person from 10 a.m. to noon July 16 in Sonora, Calif.; from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. July 17 in Big Pine, Calif.; from 1 to 3 p.m. July 30 in Ukiah, Calif.; and both from 9 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. July 31 in Eureka, Calif.
