    CEQA materials/certification?

    Hello,

    I've searched around the forums for CEQA materials (books) required for certification, but many of them seem to be outdated.

    I considered the UC Extension courses, but they are a bit pricey.

    Are there any updated books I can use to self study???

    Thanks.

    The CEQA Deskbook is all you need, along with briefs on AB32 and SB375 (which can be found online, start with CERES and OPR).

    There's the link to the CERES site. Lots of good material.

    Isn't the Deskbook outdated though

    Not substantively so, except for GHG legislation and guidance. That's why I said find briefs on implementation of AB32 and SB 375. I think the last one was updated in 2005 or something, and they have a new version coming this year, most likely with all the GHG stuff included. But get the old one and it will still serve you well, since GHG impacts are only one area of CEQA and there's lots of guidance you can find online.
