AIAQTP: American Indian Air Quality Training Program

Professional Assistance

ITEP's Professional Assistance (PA) program is designed to meet the more individualized training needs of tribal air quality professionals. Professional Assistance can take many forms, and can address a multitude of air quality topics. ITEP staff will make every effort to connect applicants with appropriate host sites or trainers in order to meet their specific needs.

Options for training topics are virtually unlimited, but some examples of topics previously addressed are:

  1. Development or review of a Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP)
  2. Technical assistance with monitoring equipment
  3. Air Quality System (AQS)
  4. Title V Permitting or permit review
  5. Indoor air quality
  6. Emissions inventory

Individual Assistance:
ITEP, tribal, or other technical staff can provide individualized assistance. Training can occur at the tribal site or other centralized location, as well as remotely. ITEP can occasionally provide financial assistance to attend training at other organizations.

Group Assistance:
Specialized training can be provided to a group of qualified individuals when a need has been determined. The group can consist of multiple people from a single tribe, or representatives from other tribes. Training can occur at the tribal site or other centralized location. Availability of training depends on funding and overall demand.

How do I request Professional Assistance?
Applications for training as well as host-site proposals are accepted on a continual basis. However, due to funding and other limitations, applicants must be aware that not all requests can be accommodated. Requests can be submitted via the Application Form below.
