Envi­ron­men­tal pro­fes­sion­als work­ing with land resources and recla­ma­tion projects will ben­e­fit from this pro­gram. These cours­es are rec­og­nized by the Alber­ta Insti­tute of Agrol­o­gists as senior-lev­el agrol­o­gy cours­es relat­ed to entrance into the pro­fes­sion and to aug­ment core knowl­edge require­ments relat­ed to a prac­tice area in AIA.

Sus­tain­able land use relies on effi­cient and rel­e­vant recla­ma­tion through the appli­ca­tion of sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly sup­port­ed procedures.

The Land Recla­ma­tion cer­tifi­cate includes cours­es focused on soil and veg­e­ta­tive prin­ci­ples, land use guide­lines and relat­ed reg­u­la­tions, soil clas­si­fi­ca­tion, test­ing, and eval­u­a­tion, as well as restora­tion and reha­bil­i­ta­tion meth­ods. These cours­es offer hands-on appli­ca­tions with real-world sit­u­a­tions and respon­sive edu­ca­tion. Stu­dents will enhance their pro­fes­sion­al skill set and knowl­edge based on cur­rent research, reg­u­la­tions, and applications.

A note about COVID-19 measures: If you see a program on our website announced as an in-person or downtown Edmonton offering, please disregard the format—but not the program. Winter, Spring, and Summer 2021 courses have been converted to remote delivery platforms. Register for a course online or apply to a program via email, and keep learning!
