Training Courses

The Training Activities Executive (TAE) oversees the provision of air quality related training courses throughout Australia and New Zealand. Comprised of a Chair and a representative from each Branch Committee, it plans and co-ordinates the schedule of courses on request or rotationally through interested Branches. The Queensland Branch hosts training courses in Brisbane or, when there is sufficient interest, in regional centres. These include both introductory and advanced courses covering general air quality, ambient and emissions measurement, meteorology and modelling, pollution control and more. A forward schedule and course descriptions are provided on the training pages. Specific enquiries can be forwarded to the Queensland branch training committee representative, while if you wish to register interest to attend a specific course please click here.
