EXCITING COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT! Train for your career in Natural Resources!

The Environmental Field Skills Certificate Program (June 7th – 25th, 2021)

The Environmental Field Skills Certificate Program (EFS) is a very practical, field-based Environmental Monitoring skills training certificate program.  The EFS is delivered on-demand, in communities throughout North America, utilizing local sites and watersheds as the ‘classroom’.

The 120-hour (three-week) EFS provides course participants with high-quality, in-demand Environmental Monitoring field skills, including Backpack Electrofishing Certification. EFS ‘graduates’ are qualified and capable to lead or assist with environmental monitoring and assessment of mining, hydro-electric, oil & gas, forestry, road construction, and other natural resource-related programs and projects.

Each day in the program, course participants are in the field learning important skills and procedures in a very realistic and practical setting, under the direction of experienced instructors and practitioners.

NRTG’s Environmental Field Skills (EFS) Certificate program is accredited by BC’s College of Applied Biology (CAB). CAB will recognize graduates of the EFS program as meeting the core academic requirements for entry as an Applied Biology Technician.

An ‘Applied Biology Technician’ designation qualifies an individual as a B.C. provincially-recognized and certified technician and helps to expand their industry credibility.

Each NRTG course includes free, lifetime admission. Enrol once – come back anytime.

NRTG is now offering a blended Environmental Field Skills Certificate training program. The classroom sessions are now offered and scheduled as a ‘live’ ONLINE Webinar with subsequent ‘face-to-face’ physical distancing field practicum sessions.
