CSERV Courses

Community Services offerings enable you to improve the quality of your life through lifelong learning. This program of fee-based classes is designed to serve individuals with educational goals that do not require college credit (there are no transcripts or grades). Community Service classes are usually shorter than credit classes, and normally do not require lengthy preparation. Many classes are offered in response to a specific population's expressed interest or need.

As of January 1, 2023

CARB’s Heavy Duty Inspection and Maintenance Regulation took effect. While the regulation will be phased in over the course of 2023, the requirements for Tester certification began on January 1, 2023. All testers who perform emissions testing pursuant to the new regulation must pass CARB’s online HD I/M course and test, available for free on the CARB website. ( Because of this, the current version of the CCDET I: PSIP / HDVIP class has been discontinued. But for those who prefer live instruction with a hands-on lab, CCDET is working on an option for you!

CCDET is in the process of revising our CCDET I course to include the new HD I/M information. Once the course is complete, we will submit it to CARB for official approval as an alternate curriculum. We estimate that this process will be completed sometime in March of 2023. The revised CCDET I: HD I/M course will have the added benefit of including hands-on instruction on operating both OBD devices and smoke meters. Because CCDET courses use live instructors and include hands-on labs, there is a registration fee, so CCDET I: HD I/M will not be free.
