Environmental Resource Management

University of Alberta

University of Alberta

Specialized and up-to-date knowledge is crucial for professionals to effectively respond to the ever-changing world of environmental management. The Environmental Resource Management (ERM) Certificate from the Faculty of Extension, University of Alberta blends theory and practical exercises to provide students with strategies and techniques in environmental planning and management. 

This program offers a solid foundation in soil, air and water processes; environmental monitoring; biotechnology; instrumentation; and experimental design. Students learn about strategies for decision-making and quantitative methods of analysis, as they explore how resource decisions are affected by biological, physical, social, economic, and institutional factors.

The ERM program is designed for individuals transitioning into the environmental field, as well as for mid-level professionals who wish to update their skills and knowledge. The certificate will also be of benefit for those aspiring to manager-level responsibilities in environmentally related fields. Work in the environmental area is highly multidisciplinary, and learners in this program come from a diverse range of professions: agrologists, biologists, engineers, industrial managers, foresters, and technologists, among others.
