This program would broadly cover: 

  • Importance of air quality monitoring & requirements under the Air Act.
  • Techniques for monitoring various pollutants.
  • Hands-on use on the instruments.
  •  Preventive maintenance, calibration& Quality Control. 
  • Air pollution control systems.
  • Air Quality Management.
  • Importance of local metrology & noise control
  • Data analysis & data interpretation.

    Why This Training 

    Enactment of the Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act in 1981, mandated monitoring of air quality and control of air pollution from various sources including vehicular, mining as well as industrial. There are several pockets in the country where air pollution problems have already become critical. Urgent and adequate measures are needed to ensure that future urban and economic development does not result in causing serious air quality deterioration. The government of India has felt this importance and notified stringent ambient air quality standards and included a few more parameters like Ozone, Benzene, Benzo(a)pyrene, As and Ni on 18th Nov 2009. The methods of measurement for these parameters have also been notified. However, a significant constraint in effectively monitoring industrial emissions and ambient air quality has been the paucity of trained manpower with adequate skills, confidence and experience. The personnel deployed on these tasks need to be fully conversant with appropriate monitoring devices, their operation, maintenance & calibration. The difficulties faced by them need to be resolved. The proposed training program would attempt to tackle such shortcomings.

    What you’ll Learn

    Hands -ON Program 
    Hands on training on air quality monitoring

    Participants will have an opportunity to upgrade their knowledge base and clear understanding of theoretical concepts of air quality monitoring of SPM, PM10, PM2.5, SO2, NOx and many more gaseous pollutants in ambient air. They will be involved in hands on field exercises in detail so that they have confidence in air quality monitoring after attending this training program.


    Air pollution has clear negative impacts on health, ecosystem and vegetation. In the module we will discuss how to plan experiment to measure ill effects of air pollutants on vegetation and health. We will discuss about techniques of measuring risk of different levels of exposure of pollutants.


    A number of different filter papers/membranes are required for monitoring and chemical characterization of particulate pollution. The module will provide understanding on type of available filter, regulations and how to standardize filters for specific type of analysis. 


    Data analysis is an integral part of an air quality monitoring program, data mining provides us with information on the characteristics of emissions. Data obtained need to be made interpretable. The module will provide a basic understanding of different types of data, their categorization and what are available tools to use for basic statistics. The module is followed by a hand on exercise using dummy datasets which will allow participants to feel the power of statistics in getting inference from any kind of monitoring exercise.

    air pollution

    Air pollution is known as major environmental hazard to human health and is estimated to cause millions of premature deaths globally. This module will provide a deeper understanding of the different types of air pollutants, their sources and how air pollutants get transported at different planetary scales. 


    Meteorological parameters have significant consequences on the air quality of the surroundings. This module will impart learning about how meteorology plays an important role in the abatement and control of air pollution. 

    noise pollution

    The module will provide an understanding of sources of noise pollution, environmental and industrial noise; effects of noise pollution, measures for prevention and control of noise and noise control legislation.
