The STA is committed to encourage the personal and
professional development of practicing source testers and students and
provide training courses on various aspects of emission monitoring.
The training arm has grown over the years following
requests from its members to provide independent and impartial training courses. The first course, working at
heights, started in 1997 after the unfortunate fatality of a stack
tester. This course, which is based on the STA Risk Assessment Guide:
Industrial-emission monitoring, has been updated at regular intervals to
take into account the new health and safety legislation. Upwards of 2000
delegates have been on the course since its inception.
