  • Course 2: LCFS Verification Requirements
  • Course 3: Alternative Fuel Pathway Applications and Annual Reports
  • Course 4: Quarterly Fuel Transactions Reports for Alternative Fuels
  • Course 5: Petroleum-Based Fuels
  • Course 6: Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS)


All trainees must first submit an accreditation application to CARB to participate in the LCFS Verifier Accreditation Training. Approved applicants may process their training registration payment below.
