The California Air Resources Board is underway with its free training seminars, which describe the requirements for the Truck and Bus regulation and the Heavy Duty Vehicle Greenhouse Gas regulation.
The next seminar is scheduled for today, March 1, at Calaveras County Library in San Andreas, Calif.

The meetings are aimed at providing information on the March 31, 2010 reporting requirements for the rules. Reporting is required by March 31 for fleets who wish to take advantage of agricultural vehicle provisions, and for fleets that operate two-engine sweepers with Tier 0 auxiliary engines. Fleets subject to the Heavy Duty Vehicle Greenhouse Gas regulation also have reporting requirements in 2010.

The seminar discussions will also include an update and overview on the regulation, focused on the agricultural and two-engine sweeper requirements; how to use the fleet calculator; and how to use the ARB online reporting system.

The seminars will be offered in the day, in the evening, and also by webcast. CARB has added training seminars in El Centro, Calif., on March 15 and in Colusa, Calif., on March 23. Also, the March 16 training seminar originally scheduled for La Mesa, Calif., has been moved to San Diego.

CARB plans to add additional dates and locations as well.
