COURSE SUMMARY:

Waste is one of the leading problems of our time – increasing waste volumes, increasing severity of impact and costs and the challenge of managing waste in developing countries and emerging markets are causing a dramatic shift in sustainability practices world-wide. Countries around the globe are moving towards a circular economy and waste must be dealt with in new, innovative ways rather than simply sending it to landfill. Failure to act in managing waste has economic, environmental, social, and health and safety implications including toxic discharge leading to pollution, increased greenhouse gas emissions, increased frequency of illnesses, and the loss of valuable resources.

The Sustainable Waste Management (SWM) Certificate Courseis an online, 80-hour course that focuses on assisting learners in building advanced knowledge and skills in Sustainable Waste Management (SWM).  At the end of this course learners should leave with the knowledge, vocabulary, skills, and in-depth understanding of Waste Management.

Note: Graduates are eligible to write the Sustainable Waste Management Professional (SWMP™) exam as part of the Foundation Technologies Institute’s credentialing process.

 

WHY THIS COURSE?

Waste is one of the leading problems of our time – increasing waste volumes, increasing severity of impact and costs and the challenge of managing waste in developing countries and emerging markets are causing a dramatic shift in sustainability practices world-wide. Countries around the globe are moving towards a circular economy and waste must be dealt with in new, innovative ways rather than simply sending it to landfills. Failure to take action in managing waste has economic, environmental, social as well as health and safety implications, including toxic discharge leading to pollution, increased greenhouse gas emissions, increased frequency of illnesses, and the loss of valuable resources.

The Sustainable Waste Management program is one of the only programs in Canada (maybe in the world) focused on building advanced knowledge and skills in Sustainable Waste Management, that leads to the opportunity to obtain the professional designation of Sustainable Waste Management Professional (SWMP™).

Employment opportunities are growing in public and private organizations, especially in industries where waste management impacts the bottom line and contributes to environmental responsibility and stewardship. Opportunities exist provincially, nationally, and internationally.

The 2013 ECO Canada Profile of Canadian Employment labour market research study indicates that 25.1% of environmental employees – the highest proportion – were working in the Administrative and Support, Waste Management and Remediation Services sector. Indications are that graduates with this skill set will be in high demand.
