LADCO works with our member states, the U.S. EPA, and other MJOs to develop capacity within the states to support their responsibilities under the Clean Air Act.
We help our state air agency training coordinators find and hire training contractors, schedule training events, and organize the logistics of bringing training opportunities to the LADCO region.
- Industrial source air permitting
- Air quality monitoring
- Facility inspections
- Emissions controls
- Air pollution regulations
- Data analysis
While LADCO staff members occasionally teach technical courses on air pollution monitoring and modeling, our primary role is as a central training coordinator for our member states. In cases where existing courses do not exist to meet the training needs of our states, LADCO procures contract support to develop and offer new courses.
LADCO and the other Multijurisdictional Organizations (MJOs) work with the Joint Training Committee (JTC) at the national scale on training issues that impact state/local/tribal air agencies across the country. Through our membership on the JTC, we advise EPA on the operation of their Learning Management System (APTI-Learn), serve on sub-committees for reviewing and updating training materials and trainers, and work on next-generation training systems to support capacity building and succession planning at state air agencies.
