Rutgers University Air Pollution Training Program (RAPTP) has been providing air pollution training to federal, state and local air pollution agency and private sector personnel since the 1950’s. The RAPTP is housed and operated in the Department of Environmental Sciences of Rutgers University, an academic department. The program maintains a state-of-art training facility that includes two classrooms and a well-equipped laboratory with source and ambient monitoring and sampling instrumentation. The Program is funded primarily through course fees and state grants to provide continuing professional education to individuals from state and local air pollution agencies, as well as the private-sector. Training courses are conducted at Rutgers University and by request at other locations.
The course instructors include the program director, Stephen Szulecki, Department of Environmental Sciences’ faculty and highly qualified individuals from both the public- and private-sectors. We regularly offer courses for certification and recertification in visible emissions evaluation and jurisdiction-specific courses in odor enforcement. We also offer in-depth courses such as Source Sampling for Pollutants (EPA/APTI-450) and Principles and Practices for Air Pollution (EPA/APTI-452).
