The Rutgers Air Pollution Training Program (RAPTP) has been offering EPA-APTI training courses since 1978 and air pollution training since 1950. The training facility includes a laboratory with a 20" horizontal/vertical duct to facilitate source sampling exercises as well as extensive air pollution instrumentation such as ambient air monitoring and sampling devices. RAPTP has offered many different air pollution training courses. Should your organization have an interest in any of the courses listed here or in discussing a custom course, please contact us so we can discuss your needs.

Note 1: EPA-based, APTI-courses at the Rutgers University Air Pollution Training Program (formerly an EPA-APTI, Area Training Center) are NO LONGER FREE OF CHARGE as they once were for employees of state and local environmental agencies. The USEPA is no longer funding Area Training Centers, as they did from 1978 through 2001, and is now directing those funds to regional consortia (MARAMA, NESCAUM, WESTAR, CENSERA, etc). Consequently, your local regional consortium, in consultation with their member-states, decides which courses to offer and also provides funding for those courses through a variety of providers. The Rutgers Air Pollution Training Program is one of those providers. Please check with your agency's training coordinator, the training coordinator for your regional consortium or call or write us for more information. The Rutgers Air Pollution Training Program (RAPTP) continues to offer high quality air pollution training to state, local and private-sector air quality professionals.
Note 2: This course is being funded by NESCAUM. There is no charge for personnel from NESCAUM member-states. For others, the course fee is $895.

Transportation from local airports: Students flying in for courses at Rutgers typically come in to Newark Liberty Airport in Newark, NJ, Philidelphia International Airport, or JFK Airport in New York City. It is highly recommended that students rent cars both for getting to Rutgers from the airport and for getting around the Rutgers campus and surrounding area during the week of class. If renting a car is not an option, please visit the website of the arriving airport and search for "ground transportation". The closest train station is New Brunswick, NJ on the Northeast Corridor Line which is served by New Jesey Transit and AMTRAK.
