Higher Certificate in Science

in Environmental Management

The NSAI Training Centre - in partnership with IT Sligo - is offering a Higher Certificate in Science in Environmental Management by distance learning.

Due to commence in October 2007, the course is being made available in single subjects or as a complete course. When 60 credits have been accumulated, participants will be eligible for a Minor Award of the Higher Certificate in Science in Environmental Management.

Participants who successfully complete the full course of 120 credits will be awarded a Higher Certificate in Science in Environmental Management.

Typically, individual subjects can be completed in a two to three-month period and the full course can be completed in two years (the course timetable allows for a number of subjects being delivered together).

Who should attend?
This course is specifically designed for people with either an interest in the environment and/or who wish to take an active part in the environmental management affairs of an organisation.

The course consists of a combination of science, business, legal and management subjects with a number of subjects being offered as electives.

It is envisaged that applicants with no scientific or engineering background can successfully complete the course. The theory aspect of the course is reinforced with workshops and/or site visits to environmental protection facilities or organisations with functioning environmental management systems.

The course also includes a project - which, typically, involves investigation of real environmental issues.
