Environmental Monitoring Training

Environmental Monitoring Training

We offer training in many aspects of environmental monitoring, including climate, water, soil, plants, and wildlife.

  • Practice Lead: John Blyth & Adam Bathe
  • Duration: Programs typically range from 1–5 weeks, depending on the type of monitoring you need.
  • Outcomes: Get general pre-employment training in the environmental monitoring field or specialized training for a specific project.
  • Learn how to document field observations and sampling.
  • Understand and follow basic protocols.
  • Be adept at conducting basic sampling.

We have conducted over 25 of these courses in nearly every community in the NWT. Environmental monitoring training can be customized to your needs. In the past, we have created short courses for Aurora College, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), and Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) on contaminated-site monitoring, as well as programs for community-based monitors in the Inuvialuit Settlement Regions. Our staff are also licensed to conduct ECO Canada Environmental Core (monitoring) training courses. Training courses typically involve an summary of the interpersonal and soft skills environmental monitors need, an overview of the environmental field in the NWT, technical skills (cameras, GPS, maps, radio), environmental sampling (water quality, soil, fish, etc.), and workplace safety.
