Course for Certified Environmental Professional in The Operation of Industrial Effluent Treatment Systems (Biological Processes – Activated Sludge Process) CePIETSO (BP)

1. Course for Certified Environmental Professional in The Operation of Industrial Effluent Treatment Systems (Biological Processes – Activated Sludge Process) CePIETSO (BP)

The success of the operation of an IETS is primarily in the hands of the operator. A knowledgeable and skilled operator or supervisor knows how to monitor the processes occurring in his IETS, understands what factors affect the IETS performance, knows what operational conditions are best for his IETS and how to maintain them, knows how to respond to upset conditions, understands the social obligations and legal implications for noncompliance.

Successful operation of an IETS is an integral part of the operation of a successful industry. A trained and skilled IETS operator or supervisor is not anymore, a luxury but rather a must-have to the industry. Good environmental performance not only portray positive corporate image but avoid possibility of factory downtime and hefty monetary penalties due to legal actions from the environmental authority.

The industries must pay great attention to the training of their staff in the proper operation and maintenance of the IETS. EiMAS is providing a training program to train your IETS operators and supervisor to be competent in operating IETS particularly in conducting performance monitoring of the IETS components.

The competent operator or supervisor will be able to ensure that the IETS is operating optimally.

This unique training course which focuses on hands-on approach is in fact the only one of its kind in Malaysia. A Certificate of Competency will be awarded to participants who successfully completes the course, passes the examination, and submits a field training report.

Certified Environmental Professional in Bag Filter Operation (CePBFO)

3. Certified Environmental Professional in Bag Filter Operation (CePBFO)

In order to assure continuous compliance with the emission standards, air pollution control systems need to be properly operated. Proper operation and maintenance are 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 certifications programs 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.

4. Course on Certified Environmental Professional in Scrubber Operation (CePSO)

One of the main air pollution control systems widely used in the industries in Malaysia for the control of gaseous pollutants is scrubbers. To ensure proper operation and continued optimal performance, scrubbers need to be operated or supervised by competent persons.

The Environment Institute of Malaysia (EiMAS) has introduced a hands-on training program to certify your operators and supervisors as competent persons to supervise the operation of scrubbers.

Through this certification program, your operators and supervisors will be trained to conduct performance monitoring as outlined in the Guidance Document on Performance Monitoring issued by the Department of Environment (DOE).

Course for Certified Environmental Professional in Sewage Treatment Plant Operation – CePSTPO

5. Course for Certified Environmental Professional in Sewage Treatment Plant Operation – CePSTPO

There are thousands of sources of sewage discharge in Malaysia ranging from simple ISTs serving a few PEs to large complex ASTSs serving several thousand PEs. The quality of treated sewage effluent discharged from these STSs depends greatly on the operation and maintenance of the systems. In order to ensure continuous regulatory compliance, serious attention must be given to the knowledge and skills of the operators and supervisors who have been tasked to operate, maintain, and monitor the performance of the systems.

The CePSTPO program implemented by EiMAS focuses on the operational aspects of the STS operation. The program incorporates training drills to develop understanding and skills in several areas, including environmental regulations and fundamental concepts of sewage treatment, sewage engineering laboratory, STS performance monitoring, statistical data analysis using computer software, technical report writing, and technical presentation.

The graduates of the CePSTPO program are well grilled STS professionals who understand DOE’s regulatory requirements and possess knowledge and skills in STS processes and performance monitoring, hence are able to optimally operate the STS. Having a CeSPTPO graduate in your organization not only makes your company comply with the legal requirement on Competent Person but is also a valuable asset that will ensure STS regulatory compliance on a continuous basis.

Course for Certified Environmental Professional in the Treatment of Palm Oil Mill Effluent (CePPOMETS)

8. Course for Certified Environmental Professional in the Treatment of Palm Oil Mill Effluent (CePPOME)

Regulatory control over discharges from crude palm oil industry is instituted through Environmental Quality (Prescribed Premises) (Crude Palm Oil) Regulations, 1977 promulgated under the Environmental Quality Act, 1974 and enforced by the Department of Environmental (DOE). The main instrument of Pollution control is the imposition of licensing system and relevant effluent discharge standards for both land application and water course discharges.

Palm oil mill effluent (POME) is essentially a colloidal suspension – basically a mixture of sterilizer condensate, separator sludge and hydro – cyclone wastewater. Raw POME has a high organic biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and if not properly treated could pose as a high organic pollutant. Notwithstanding of the several limitations of conventional lagoon – based effluent treatments systems such as generating large amounts of sludge and take up large land areas, they have been traditionally used for the treatment of POME.

The systems are attractive due to their simplicity with relatively low operating costs, high in-situ solids storage capabilities and low operator attention requirements. Where land is available and the topography is suitable, lagoon-based systems have been the preferred secondary treatment process steps to reduce the biological and chemical constituents of POME as mainly represented by the parameters – biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD) and total suspended solids (TSS). New treatment technologies have had been developed to provide cost-effective treatment technologies for palm oil effluent with the approach ranging from zero waste generation to resource recovery.

The main purpose of the training course is to introduce the participants with the concept and practice of performance monitoring as a means to monitor and control effluent treatment process efficiency and to ensure that the treatment system is operating optimally and in compliance with the environmental regulations.
