Who Should Attend: This intermediate permit writing course is designed for personnel of state and local permitting agencies who are new to reviewing permit applications for facilities that are deemed to be major sources under the federal New Source Review programs and the Title V program. This class is intended for permit engineers and scientists who are responsible for permitting major source activities.

Course Description: This three-day program will provide inspectors, permit writers, and regulatory personnel with practical information and tools to assess compliance with NSR/PSD requirements and to develop cases.

Topics include: What is exactly is NSR/PSD? Why is it important? Who is subject to NSR/PSD? What are typical violations? What kinds of source information can reveal a violation?
