Validation is the systematic, independent and documented process for the evaluation of a greenhouse gas (GHG) assertion in a GHG project plan against agreed validation criteria.
Validation is normally performed for GHG emission reduction projects before they are implemented and it helps ensure that the project conforms to the requirements of a standard or the rules of a GHG program. This 2-day course will provide detailed training on the approach to validation using the ISO 14064-3 standard, with specific examples of how the validation approach would be applied to a project that conforms with the ISO 14064-2 standard or the requirements of the WRI/WBCSD GHG Project Protocol.
Who Should Attend
Professional Engineers interested in offering validation or verification services to the emerging carbon marketplace or for national and international regulated GHG programs
Key Course Objectives
Attendees at this course will learn how to enter the emerging carbon trading marketplace. As carbon offset trading schemes and new government regulations increase, so will the need for qualified, independent GHG Validators. This Validator course is formulated to equip all attendees with the knowledge to ensure that your projects conform to the requirements of ISO 14064 and to the rules of the GHG program. This course builds on GHG Projects course (ISO 14064-2) and provides detailed training on the approach to validation using the ISO 14064-3 standard.
This course will explore the following concepts in detail:
Planning the GHG quantificationAssessing your own competencies to conduct the validation
Establishing the validation scope, objectives, criteria and level of assurance with the client
Establishing a materiality threshold for the validation
Assessing the risks involved in a validation
Developing a validation plan, including a sampling plan
Assessing GHG information systems and controls
Assessing the GHG documentation, data, information and emission reduction or removal
Estimates or measurements for the project
Evaluating the GHG assertion against the agreed-upon verification criteria
Issuing the validation statement, including any limitations that may be put on the statement
