In order to assure continuous compliance with the emission standards, air pollution control systems need to be properly operated. Proper operation and maintenance is also a requirement under Regulation 40 of the Clean Air Regulations, 1978. The key factor that ensures successful operation of bag filters is having a trained operator in charge of the operation and maintenance of the bag filters. The DOE is also in the process of regulating the competency of personnel qualified to maintain and operate control equipment as provided under section 51(1)(w) of the Environmental Quality Act 1974. Thus, there is a need for operators of bag filters and supervisors to become competent persons who are certified by the DOE.

Responsibility on performance monitoring and preventive maintenance of bag filters should be entrusted only to a skilled and trained operator. DOE is providing a training program to train your operators and supervisors to be competent in operating bag filters. The emission from bag filters which are properly operated and maintained will always be in compliance with the emission standards. Regulatory compliance means avoiding any embarrassment from unexpected enforcement action arising from non compliance. Therefore enroll your operators into this unique one of its kind certification program in Malaysia which focuses on hands-on approach. A Certificate of Competency will be awarded to participants who successfully completes the course, passes the examination and submits a field training report.
