Water's the Future
Join a growing area of environmental concern: water quality and protection. It's also an area of current, and future, job growth.
Learn how to protect, and sustainably manage, both surface and groundwater water . You’ll learn both field skills and best practices.
Whether you’re in the field or in a lab, your hands-on training uses modern techniques and equipment. You’ll learn how to do field monitoring and surveys. You’ll study protection and rehabilitation programs, then see and do them in the field.
You’ll be job ready in 2 ways:
- Practical job skills such biomonitoring, habitat assessment, site assessment, water monitoring and sampling
- Industry-required certification such as safe ATV and boat use
You’ll network with government and industry on field trips and at regional conferences. The Alberta Lake Management Society annual workshop is one possibility.
