Cambrian College in Sudbury will launch a new environmental technician program this fall.
The program will run five semesters and explore climate change issues, land restoration, and water conservation and management to prepare students for a career in Canada’s growing environmental sector.
It’s among a handful of other programs being introduced by the college in September. The others include social service worker (Indigenous specialization), business analytics, crime analytics, health analytics, and community and health services navigation.
“We must ensure that what we offer in the classroom is what’s needed in the workplace, not just locally but nationally and around the world,” said Jean Brown, Cambrian’s vice-president of academic, in a release.
“These new programs offer skills that are increasingly in demand, and some of our new graduate certificates are unique to Cambrian.
