A company that has to carry out stack emission monitoring, will normally be very aware of this and the requirements to use an MCERTS qualified testing specialist. What is less clear is how you are supposed to support such consultants throughout the process and what you are supposed to do with the results once you have them. This course is designed to give you a greater understanding of how to work with your chosen specialist, how to prepare for a visit and how to understand and interpret the results afterwards.

Who Should Attend

Anyone who is responsible for arranging and overseeing the companies stack emission monitoring as well as dealing with and reporting on the results of that monitoring. It may also be the person responsible for dealings with the Environment Agency or other regulatory authority.

Aims and Objectives

This 2-day course covers the fundamentals of air sampling on day 1, followed by the principles of Stack Emission Monitoring on day 2. There is an optional day before these 2 days, covering air sampling for the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2005.

The objectives of this course are to equip you with the skills and knowledge to facilitate and work with a qualified MCERTS consultant to prepare for their visit, assist where necessary and to understand and interpret the report afterwards

  • To facilitate an understanding of the basics of air sampling and monitoring
  • To look at the regulatory framework for stack emission monitoring
  • To develop an understanding of the sampling method for stack monitoring and the requirements on-site
  • To give a practical insight into air sampling and monitoring
  • To show how to understand and interpret the results of the monitoring and hold meaningful conversations internally and with the relevant regulatory authority
  • To provide an overview of potential control measures and how to assess their effectiveness.

Course Overview

The course consists of 2 or 3 days, which are structured in the following way.

Two Day Course

The syllabus for module 1 includes an introduction to air sampling methods and principles on day one along with some practical work with air sampling equipment. Day 2 will be in-depth on the requirements and regulatory framework for Stack Emission Monitoring.

There is an optional day before the start of this course.

Optional Third Day – Air Sampling for COSHH

Stack emission monitoring often goes hand-in-hand with air sampling for COSHH and so there is an optional day at the start of the course specifically designed to build on the information from days two and three to give delegates and insight into air sampling for the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2005. You will learn how to carry out air sampling in order to work alongside an occupational hygienist, conducting supplemental air sampling, assessing the effectiveness of your control measures and how to understand and interpret an air sampling report. You will also see how this is incorporated into your COSHH risk assessments.


For those attending only the Stack Emissions 2-day course, a certificate of attendance will be provided as your record of this training.

For people wanting to also complete the Air Sampling for COSHH course, an optional report can be produced by delegates and can either be based on data taken from the course or from air sampling carried out at work. Your tutor will then provide feedback on what is good and what you might be able to improve upon.

Further Learning

This course is ideally supplemented with our two-day COSHH Risk Assessment course, which is for anyone who is responsible for the companies Assessments and COSHH compliance. Once you have a good understanding of the results of your air sampling, then these must be incorporated into your Risk Assessments along with information from a substance’s Safety Data Sheet (SDS) and other regulatory requirements, all of which is covered on this course
