How to get into environmental consulting with limited education.
I have a arts degree in geography from a Canadian university (I’m applying for Canadian jobs) and 1 year completed for a college environmental technician program. My fiancé got into med school across the country so I moved with her without finishing the last year of my college program.
As far as employment history goes my most recent summer contract was with a conservation authority in Ontario where I did mostly watershed monitoring. I feel very lucky to have received an offer for that position because without it I don’t think I have much of a chance getting my foot in the door on my education alone.
I’ve been doing a bit of digging for furthering my education online and stumbled upon Eco Canada. I’d like to know if their Environmental Professional in training designation is worth pursuing. There were a few courses they offer on their website for young people like myself looking to break into the field. I’m considering taking these.
The second online opportunity I stumbled upon was a 6 course environmental management program offered through Mohawk college. They also offer an online certificate for environmental engineering.
If anyone can speak to the worth behind these resources or have any words of advice I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
