VER Program Trained Operator Certification Programs/Systems
VER program success (at reducing emissions) is limited by how well the operator implements inventory, inspection, maintenance, and recordkeeping functions/ requirementsof the program. The VER Program Trained Operator Certification System (VERPTOCS) ensures a base quality level in VER Program implementation is achieved. Each VER trainee is issued a unique ID code that is needed to operate VEMS software modules or implement program inventory, inspection, maintenance, or other control program functions. This training certification guarantees a base level of experience for all VER program operators. Refresher training is required every 2 years. Notifications to VER Program operators are provided within 3 months of certification expiration, with a 3-month window after expiration available for renewal before deactivation.
