Overview

Are you passionate about the environment? Start a rewarding career to protect and sustain the health of our environment and ecosystems.

Through extensive, hands-on training in both laboratory and field settings, you will prepare for technical work in the environmental sector and gain practical knowledge and skills in compliance auditing and contaminated site management to impact assessment and pollution prevention and monitoring.

This skill set is based on an integrated, hands-on training program that gives graduates a good working knowledge of physical and life sciences, including general biology, ecology, toxicology, chemistry, physics, and statistics.

The program will be offered on campus and will include hands-on training in both laboratory and field settings. Students will also have the option of participating in a co-operative work term. Following completion of the program, students will receive a diploma in Environmental Protection Technology and be eligible for designation as a certified technologist or technician.
