Environmental Assessment and Restoration

The future of the planet in the palm of your hand

From the melting of the polar ice caps to the disappearing of the world’s wilderness, restoration of the environment has become crucial to our way of life. You can do your part in this vital industry through our Environmental Assessment and Restoration program. Our practical two-year diploma, honed after nearly four decades of experience, provides you with the knowledge you need to start in this growing field. You’ll learn how to restore the resources our world depends on. You’ll also get the knowledge necessary to improve water quality and restore environmental impacts such as abandoned industrial sites. But, we understand that sometimes know-how isn’t enough to do a crucial job like this. That’s why we’ll train you in using the latest techniques and applications to enhance your employability.
