Stack Sampling

Stack Sampling Workshops


Stack sampling is the process of collecting and verifying emissions from industrial sources. Mount Royal University offers stack sampling workshops in two versions: two-day or five-day seminars. The two-day seminar is tailored for people who need some knowledge of stack sampling but may not carry out the sampling themselves. The five-day seminar is designed to provide a hands-on and in-depth experience for individuals who will be performing the sampling. Choose the format and schedule that best suits your training needs. 

NOTE:  Effective Spring 2019, the new 2018 draft Government of Alberta Revised CEMS Code will be integrated into the content of this course.
