Welcome to Tribal Air Monitoring Support Center

The TAMS Center offers different training courses that focus on a variety of topics related to ambient and indoor air quality monitoring. To date, over 1,900 tribal professionals have been trained by the TAMS Center, representing 298 tribes.

TAMS Center courses have been designed to complement other American Indian Air Quality Training Program courses, and generally address more advanced air quality issues. Each course is designed with tribal audiences and issues in mind, integrating tribal case studies and tribal professionals as part of the instructional team in every course. Class size is kept to a minimum to ensure a higher level of interaction and one-on-one training opportunities with the instructors.
