Designing a hands-on environmental sampling training course for students that meets the requirements of industry

Abstract

A large percentage of new geology graduates will find employment within the environmental sector and will likely be engaged with clients and regulatory agencies on permitting, environmental baseline studies, contaminated site assessment, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and on supporting engineering projects. Compared to the traditional mining and oil & gas sectors, demand for environmental professionals is generally less volatile, is often based in major population centres and offers a greater degree of career stability. The environmental profession encompasses a wide range of degrees, including chemistry, engineering, geology, hydrology, environmental law, and biology. This can make for a varied and stimulating career choice.
