Duration: 1 Year
With the growth of environmental management and regulation, the demand for environmental professionals has never been higher. An Environmental Control graduate certificate from AACTD offers quick entry into this rapidly expanding field for graduates from a traditional science, engineering or technology discipline. The Environmental Control Program builds on existing knowledge to develop the specialized expertise and skills needed by employers in the environmental sector.
Practical Curriculum Designed by the Industry
You’ll acquire comprehensive knowledge of:
- Environmental laws and regulations
- Air pollution, energy and climate-change issues
- Environmental management systems, including ISO 14001
- Current methods for sampling, analysis and treatment of air, water, solid waste and hazardous waste streams
- Strategies for conducting environmental audits, performing site assessments, and designing occupational health and safety programs
All courses are taught by practicing environmental professionals, ensuring that program content is both practical and current. An advisory committee of industry and government experts developed the Environmental Control Program and continues to assist Sheridan in curriculum design.
Environmental Control students are eligible to apply for a four-month, paid co-op placement providing valuable work experience.
After earning an Environmental Control graduate certificate, program graduates find employment opportunities with environmental consulting firms, federal, provincial and municipal governments, manufacturers and non-government environmental agencies (NGOs). Recent graduates moved directly into jobs that involved:
- Monitoring and sampling of air/water/soil
- Field and laboratory analysis for pollutants
- Environmental management, auditing and inspections
- Phase I and II environmental site assessment
- Employee training and laboratory/process safety
- Technical service/sales/marketing
- Installation of waste treatment systems
- Environmental facility operation/upgrading and pollution prevention
- Environmental research/consulting
- Regulatory compliance/policy development
- Postsecondary diploma or degree in science or engineering
This program is most appropriate for graduates of college or university programs in chemistry, chemical technology, chemical engineering, civil technology, civil engineering, mechanical technology, mechanical engineering, and the natural sciences (ecology/geology/ biology/environmental management/geography/ biochemistry).
Eligible applicants will be selected on the basis of demonstrated competence through related work and/or educational experience.
Applicants who do not meet the admission requirements for this program will be assessed and advised individually and may be considered for other, related programs.
