Vehicle Applied Emissions

Anyone wanting to be a certified emissions inspector in Salt Lake County must complete a 24-hour training class conducted by the Salt Lake County Health Department.

 

Before taking the emissions inspector class, a candidate must first demonstrate their basic automotive knowledge by passing an exam administered by the Salt Lake County Health Department. The SLCC Applied Emissions course provides students the pre-requisite knowledge needed to prepare to take the county course.

 

SLCC’s Applied Vehicle Emissions course are a hybrid with online components along with two live sessions. The two live sessions take place from 5-9pm. The first live session is presented via webinar. The second live sessions takes place face-to-face on campus where students practice what they have learned and work with the instructor to fine tune new skills.

If computer access is needed, learners may use the Miller campus computer lab during operating hours. 

 

Emissions recertification is done through the Salt Lake County Health Department.
