Dust Control Training

You may need dust control training if your work involves dust-generating operations, or the processing of concrete, asphalt, or rock products (including crushing or screening rock products). See our Do You Need Dust Control Training? page for more details. 

All dust control certifications are valid for three years from the date of issue. Dust classes often fill very quickly, so be sure to register well in advance of the expiration of your certification. Newly-hired employees will be granted 30 days from their date of hire to complete training and attain the applicable certification. An identification card will be issued by the department upon completion of training and is to be carried by the certified individual at all times while on site.
  
First decide which kind of training class you need by consulting the Rule 310 Class Schedule or the Rule 316 Class Schedule. After selecting a class and a specific date, register and pay the fees.
