Environmental Field Skills Certificate (EFS) Program

Course Description:

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.

Course Format:

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.
