2015 Air Permit to Install Application Workshop Series

Agency: Environmental Quality

Photo of a Permit to Install Workshop classLOCATION FOR ALL CLASSES:
Michigan Department of Environmental Quality
Constitution Hall
525 W. Allegan Street
Lansing, Michigan

January 28, 2015  -  March 25, 2015  -  May 19, 2015  -  September 1, 2015  -  November 10, 2015

This workshop qualifies for 2 Continuing Education Hours (CEHs) for Professional Engineers.

This Air Permit to Install (PTI) Application Training will appeal to those who are interested in learning more about the PTI application process, as well as those who have project-specific questions.

The first portion of the workshop will address what constitutes an administratively complete application and an explanation of a step-by-step process to ensure a complete application.  During the second portion of the workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a general question and answer session or meet one-on-one with a permit engineer if they have project-specific questions.  The Question and Answer Session is ideal for those with no specific project, but a desire to find out more about the PTI process. The One-on-One Sessions with an engineer are best for persons who:

  • Have project-specific questions related to an air permit.
  • See a need for changes in their existing air permit (e.g., production increase, changes in monitoring, new raw materials, equipment modifications, etc.)
  • Expect to submit an air permit in the next few months.
