CK Begins QSTI Application Process

CK Environmental, Inc. employees’ are currently in the application process of becoming Qualified Stack Testing Individuals.
The Qualified Stack Testing Individual (QSTI) program is conducted by the Source Evaluation Society (SES) as a service testing industry to ensure that the highest quality data is produced by stack testing firms.
The goal of the QSTI exam is to determine whether the candidate demonstrates knowledge and the ability to apply source testing methods, fundamental engineering, and chemistry principles in a manner consistent with that of a field test team leader. In addition to thorough and practical knowledge of source testing methods, those principles include an understanding of elementary physical gas laws and chemistry, basics of testing (e.g. isokinetic and proportional sampling). The candidate is expected to exemplify and demonstrate professional and ethical conduct not only during the exam process but also during emissions testing projects.
CK Environmental, Inc. employees have undergone this process to comply with the Stack Testing Accreditation Council’s requirements for company accreditation.The accreditation process ensures that stack testing companies are generating data that is of sound quality as well as adhering to EPA methods. All companies that are accredited are required to conduct projects in accordance with ASTM D7036-04.
We have challenged ourselves to improve upon the already high standards that CK Environmental has always portrayed. It is another step taken to ensure that our clients receive data of the highest standard.
