Lakes Environmental Software

CALPUFF Training - Dallas, TX


Lakes Environmental has offered training in air  dispersion modeling worldwide since 1998. Our  classes not only emphasize the importance of  CALPUFF’s theoretical application, but also its  practical hands-on functionality. Lakes  Environmental believes that the best way to  learn new software is to learn it first hand. That’s  why every course attendee is trained by our  experts, in a smaller class setting, and provided  individual access to CALPUFF View over the  duration of our training. We ensure your training  experience provides you with all the necessary  tools and information to carry out your own  CALPUFF modeling projects. Well structured classes, expert instructors, small  class sizes, and extensive course materials; it’s no  wonder Lakes Environmental is internationally  recognized for its training.
