Agora's CEMS TRAINING COURSE - Fall 2021

September 28-30, 2021

Embassy Suites (Brier Creek)

Raleigh, North Carolina

Agora's most popular training package is a comprehensive, 3-day CEMS Users Training Program presented by Agora's CEM experts which addresses Acid Rain, NSPS and MATS Rule CEM requirements that are applicable to the electric utility industry.  While we have recently been providing the course online due to COVID-19, we are once again happy to present the course in-person near our home office in Raleigh, North Carolina.  NOTE: This comprehensive training program can be specifically structured to meet an individual company's needs and performed at the client's site.  Please contact Agora for more details.

The training program is conducted in a classroom presentation format that includes updates on the Acid Rain Program and other regulatory issues of interest to electric utilities and other industries using CEMS.  The focus of the course will be on CEM fundamentals and how to successfully administer Part 75 and Part 60 CEMS QA/QC programs.  In addition, compliance requirements of the EGU MATS Rule will be covered.  Click here to download a copy of the training brochure and registration.

COVID-19 Update

Given rising vaccination rates and the falling infection and hospitalization rates here in North Carolina as well as expressed interest of our clients,   
Agora plans to offer the Fall CEMS Course once again in person in Raleigh.  For your safety, we will follow all state related restrictions for indoor gatherings that may apply when the course is held.  All our staff have been fully vaccinated and we would encourage anyone who plans to attend to be vaccinated as well.

[Note: We do not plan to offer a virtual version of the training in conjunction with the Fall CEMS Course.  However, please contact us if you are interested in our virtual or in-person training options.]
