TAFE NSW has announced a brand new course: Certificate IV in Environmental Management and Sustainability.
Beginning on 1 May 2017 and running part-time over 18 weeks, the course teaches participants skills such as waste and waste cost reduction, energy usage and cost reduction, and sustainable procurement. It is the only Certificate IV Environmental Management and Sustainability course in all of TAFE NSW.
“This is an exciting opportunity to really make a difference to the future of global sustainability by leading the way in sustainable practices,” said Agata Mitchell, head teacher Applied Environmental Management.
The course focuses on applying the acquired knowledge and skills to a business environment, making it suitable for those who care for the environment and are looking for a new career; those working in industries where those skills are now in high demand, such as the property and construction industries; and anyone who wants to help move towards a more sustainable environment.
“The Certificate IV in Environment Management and Sustainability course was created to meet industry demand for a course that teaches the nuts and bolts of being able to assess and implement environmental protection strategies and tactics that can be applied to ordinary commercial businesses, as well as private residences,” said Mitchell. “While there are a plethora of university degrees in environmental science out there, this course teaches you the hands-on, innovative, let’s-do-it-now skills.”
The course is being offered at TAFE NSW Ryde in blended learning mode, which consists of online learning as well as face-to-face sessions and field trips. It is subsidised by the government’s Smart and Skilled scheme and no previous experience is necessary.
More information about the course can be accessed here or by calling 131 674.
