Environmental Field Skills Certificate (EFS) Program
Our Environmental Field Skills (EFS) Certificate Program is a leading-edge fully online and field-based Environmental Technician skills training certificate program, introducing course participants to the skills and abilities required to conduct environmental monitoring and assessments. The EFS is delivered in communities throughout North America, utilizing local sites and watersheds as the ‘classroom’. Our program deliveries incorporate three instructional methods: online with live, instructor-led sessions with discussions and further analysis of a topic; online recorded modules allowing students to learn at their own pace and convenience; and field exercises completed independently by students in a convenient location.
EFS ‘graduates’ are qualified and capable to assist with environmental monitoring and assessment of mining, hydro-electric, oil & gas, forestry, road construction, agriculture, and other natural resource-related programs and projects.
Our customized Career Choice EFS program is designed to maximize student engagement with a flexible, part-time schedule. Students will attend two online instructor-led classes per week and complete field exercises at their own convenience and schedule prior to the following week of classes.
Our EFS has no formal prerequisites.

If you have any care about what goes on in the great outdoors, this class is #1 from start to finish! I like that the instructors cover safety right at the beginning of the course, and do so throughout the course. Learning how to use a map, compass, clinometer, have been fun – I have always used a map, but who knew there was so much more to learn about them! The field studies have been fun – getting the hands experience really engrains the lessons. I have never felt such self-enrichment from a course. Thank you NRTG and thank you Amazon!
I, Jonathan Navarro have had an awesome learning experience with the NRTG instructors and staff. Have learned a lot of new skills and enjoyed the program and the field assignments. Would definitely recommend this class..
I have learned so much from this course, more than I ever excepted that I would. Honestly I thought of myself as being pretty knowledgeable in wildlife, avian and fishery, but taking this course opened my eyes and mind even more to things I never knew. Very great and wonderful experience. I plan on coming back for more courses to learn more and to further educate myself. NRTG has to be the BEST School I have attended in all the schools before, the Staff and Instructors are always there for me and have become the Best Mentors I could ask for.
Learning through the NRTG course has been a wonderful experience that far exceeded my expectations. I am really excited to move forward towards a career in the field, and to experience some of the advanced courses that are available!
