  Discoverer with AQS AQS Precision & Accuracy New Look & Features of Discoverer
The "AQS Introduction" class is designed for new users, primarily those who will be submitting data to AQS.  It is a full 2-day class with hands-on exercises.  Class size is limited to 40 people.  Please do not register for this class if you have previously attended it.

"Discoverer with AQS" shows how to use the Discoverer web tool from Oracle Corporation to perform ad hoc queries of the AQS database. You will learn how to connect to Discoverer and how to use it to retrieve AQS data, including raw data.  If you've taken an "Intro to Discoverer" session before but have not been using the tool, feel free to register for this session. This same session is offered twice.  Class size is limited to 40 people.

"AQS Precision & Accuracy" shows how to use the Air Quality System Precision & Accuracy Generator (AQSP&A) to create AQS data input transactions for precision and accuracy data.  This same session is offered twice.  Class size is limited to 40 people.

"New Look & Features of Discoverer" is designed for users familiar with Discoverer who want to see what changed with the new release.  Release 2 of version 10g includes a number of new features plus a completely new look and feel.  This same session is offered twice.  Class size is limited to 40 people.

"EPA's Design Value Process" explains the process EPA follows in developing design values for Ozone and PM2.5.  Class size is unlimited.

The "Tribal Data Toolbox Introduction" class is provided for tribal professionals who are interested in receiving preliminary training on the Tribal Data Toolbox, a Microsoft Access database available at no cost to tribes.  The Toolbox is designed to enable tribal air programs to manage ambient air monitoring data, including criteria pollutants (both manual and continuous methods), meteorological data, QC and audit data, as well as administrative information such as personnel, site information, and equipment tracking.  The Toolbox is capable of AQS raw data file generation, as well as other reports and charts.  Participants should bring site and sampler information, at least two weeks of data directly from the sampler, copies of the most recent set of QC and audit results, and a USB drive or CD with at least 20 MB of free space to this training. Class size is limited to 20 people.

   Wednesday Evening Group Event  

We don't know yet what this will be, but you don't want to miss it!  (Since our hotel is right on the river, it will probably involve a boat.)

If yes, please indicate the number of additional, non-conference folks (friends, family, etc.) that also plan to participate in the group event with you:
