By Charlie Morasch, Land Line contributing writer | 11/5/2014

With a new year of emissions enforcement approaching, the California Air Resources Board is offering several free courses for anyone in the trucking industry who wants to learn more about complying with its regulations.

At least three of CARB’s classes will be available online by webinar.

For truck owners wanting to address multiple California emissions regulations at the same time CARB is tentatively scheduled to host one-stop events for its Course 530 “Diesel Truck” course. CARB is slated to hold the event on Dec. 10 in San Diego and on Dec. 16 in Los Angeles.

To discuss both the Truck and Bus Rule and California’s requirements that trucks and trailers have a combination of aerodynamics and/or low-rolling-resistance tires aimed at improving fuel mileage, CARB will host Course 514, “Tractor-Trailer GHG and Truck and Bus Regulations Overview.”

CARB is scheduled to host two webinar versions of Course 514 from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Nov. 20 and from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Dec. 17. For more information and to register for Course 514, click here.
