Training Program

WESTAR's training program works closely with state and local air pollution control agencies in fifteen western states to understand priority training needs, and to identify, design, develop and deliver needed, cost-effective, responsive, and western-states-focused training courses targeted at meeting these priority needs. WESTAR's educational opportunities enable our member air quality professionals to quickly learn new job responsibilities and maintain, enhance and update skills in their existing areas of responsibility to effectively and efficiently serve the needs of their constituencies.
