Greenhouse Gas Validation Course


About ISO 14640-3 GHG Validation Training Course

Greenhouse Gas Validation is the systematic, independent and the 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.

The course includes interactive team-based exercises, a detailed case study(to reinforce key concepts throughout the course), and a final exam. The course can be adapted to address validation within the context of a given GHG program.
