Find green business solutions
shipping and logistics include ships rail and trucking The California Council on Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) offers, through selected California community colleges, a one-day low-cost course that provides an in-depth look at the CARB’s Vehicle Inspection Program (HDVIP) and the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) (CCDET class schedule)

Participants in the course receive:

  • Hands-on training on the correct administration of the SAE J1667 “Snap Acceleration Smoke Test Procedures for Heavy-Duty Diesel Powered Vehicles” which is required under both smoke inspection programs;
  • Basic smoke emissions troubleshooting and repair; and
  • Assurance that your technicians will be up-to-date on California’s heavy-duty vehicle inspection programs.

Provides the skills to help you save money and do your part to help clean the air!

For a diesel repair facility that performs smoke testing, CCDET participation will assure your clients that your technician will correctly administer the snap-acceleration test. This can help prevent their vehicles from receiving citations.

For the fleet owner, CCDET training will assure you that your maintenance technicians will correctly administer the snap-acceleration test which will help you avoid costly penalties. You will also profit from increased fuel savings and get the maximum use from your vehicles due to proper maintenance.

To ensure quality testing per the specifications of the SAE J1667, the CARB strongly recommends opacity testing staff attend one of the CCDET college classes and obtain certification. For a list of colleges that are CCDET members and have the qualified instructors and the proper test equipment for your training, please go to CCDET College Members.

The California Council of Diesel Education and Technology is a cooperative venture of the Air Resources Board (ARB), the service industry, heavy-duty engine manufacturers, and the California educational system. The CCDET is partially funded by environmental cases settled by the ARB.

A list of the CCDET College members that provide these courses are listed on the ARB website.
